  1. Game Captures in Windows 10 is Misplaced


    Last month, I wanted to move the Captures folder to Photos since I want my Videos folder to be just filled with movies and TV series. Yes, I was able to do such, but instead of putting its location in a subfolder in Pictures, I accidentally set its location to the Pictures folder itself. I want to move its location again, but since the location now is in the main Pictures folder, what should I do?

    :)

  3. windows 10 snippit capture

    Hi David,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing in accessing screen captures obtained from snipping tool. We will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know if the issue is confined to any specific capture that you have obtained?

    This issue might have occurred due to corrupted system files. Try the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to run SFC scan and check if it helps.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. If a
    Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit
      Enter.
    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.

    Step 2: Also, I suggest you to install all the pending updates on Windows 10.


    • Connect to the internet.

    • Press Windows
      key and type updates.

    • Click on Check for updates.

    • Under Windows Updates, click on
      Check for updates.

    • Try to install the updates being shown.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of this issue, we will be happy to help you further.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
