    Finding Photo App album


    Where do I find a photo app album? I would like to find the file in explorer so I can copy and paste it to a USB device.


    When I'm in the app I can see the album and the photos in it but can't find a way to select it to copy. An earlier post stated to use the 'select' prompt and then choose 'select all' but I don't see that option.


    I go to the 'pictures' folder and the album is not there. I would think there would be a simple way to view the album and pictures in it using file explorer.


    Am I missing something?

    :)

    Why did the photos app auto-create a random photo album?

    The automatic album creation is a new feature:

    (Source: Microsoft documentation.) It didn't add all the photos taken on that date because it thought some were too similar to others:

    Date and time are definitely taken into account when grouping the photos; a CNET article suggests there might be more complex logic too:

    The location would be determined from information embedded in the picture by the device that took it.

    Concerning the uninvited appearance of the app: That seems to be a bug experienced by many people with the management of Universal app processes. For some, it's caused by a certain version of DisplayFusion.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1. Could you please briefly explain the procedure that you have followed to setup an album using Windows 10?
    2. Which application are you using to display the album?
    3. Which version of Windows is running on your device?


    Refer the article Which Windows operating system am I running
    to provide the details.



    If you’re referring to Photos app, I suggest you to refer the section “Help the app find more photos” from the article
    See all your photos
    for the steps.





    Hope it helps.

    photo app - How can I do a slideshow in an album? I only see the slideshow option outside of albums.

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.


    • Are you referring to the slide show option in the photo app?
    I suggest you to follow the below steps for the slideshow option and check if it helps.


    • Open the “Photo App”

    • Go to any three options “Collection”, “Albums” and “Folders”.

    • Click on any “Photo” and press the key “F5” it will launch slide show.

    Hope this information is helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
