  1. how can I stop or disable Windows photos auto downloading some extension feature


    when I was using Windows photos ,I just find noise of my HHD, turns out the application was reading my photos and categorizing them.

    well , I don't need them ,but didn't see a way to disable them , so I Go to Firewall to block Windows photos from access Internet ,but still sometimes Windows reset Firewall setting to allow its downloading ,its annoying.

    Photos

    Hi David,

    It appears that the Camera roll feature is enabled in your Windows Phone that’s why your photos sync on your computer automatically. We suggest that you follow the steps below on how disable the Auto upload setting on your Windows Phone.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Swipe Left to Application Settings.
    • Select Photo+Camera.
    • Select OneDrive under Auto Upload setting.
    • Choose Turn off.

    Do let us know if you need any other assistance.

    Disable auto-upload of photos to OneDrive

    Hi Mark,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forum.



    Auto-upload of photos to OneDrive occurs because there is no Group Policy
    setting to disable the Camera roll upload photos and videos option.



    I suggest you to try the resolution suggested in How to prevent
    pictures from being auto-uploaded to OneDrive
    and check if it works.



    Note: The article holds good for Windows 10.



    Thumbnails for files won’t be displayed if the File Explorer is configured to show icons instead of thumbnails.

    You may turn on Thumbnails and check if it works:

    • Open File Explorer and click on the
      File
      menu.
    • Choose Change folder and search options to open
      Folder Options.
    • Click on the ‘View’ tab, and under
      Advanced Settings
      , uncheck Always show icons, never thumbnails.
    • Apply the changes.
    • Restart File Explorer and check if the issue persists.


    If the issue persists, you may clear the thumbnail cache.

    Clear thumbnail cache:

    • Press Win + R keys together on the keyboard to open the Run dialog and type the following into the Run box:
      cleanmgr
    • Select the drive, and check the box for Thumbnails.
    • Click OK and wait for the cache to be cleared.


    I suggest you to post a feedback in the Feedback Hub
    to bring back Filmstrip viewer, so that our developer team can have a look into it and include it in the upcoming updates.



    Regards,
