  1. How Do I Move a Picture Saved on my Desktop to Windows 10 Photos?


    Photo Gallery used to save all pictures to itself if I downloaded them to my desktop. I just downloaded a picture from an email to my desktop, and it doesn't appear in Photos. I tried dragging it over, tried changing Settings (nothing relevant), and now I'm stuck. Searched the internet, but absolutely nothing came up that was relevant to my question. So what's the secret? Thanks.

    :)

  2. Lost Picture ID + all photo files and Touchpad

    Hi Doug,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Appreciate your interest in using Windows 10.

    I would like to ask if the option to keep files and settings was selected at the time of roll back to previous version.

    Also, some files may be hidden. So, I suggest you to check the size of the drive where the photos were saved. If the files are hidden, suggest you to follow the steps provided below:

    • Right click on Start icon and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type/ (copy & paste) the below command line.
    Attrib –h –r –s /s /d D:*.* (Replace the letter ”D” with the drive letter where the photos were saved)

    Check if the photos are available.

    For the ID picture on sign-in, can set it again by following the steps below:

    • Go to PC Settings.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • In the right pane, click on Browse under Add a Picture.
    • Select the desired picture and click on OK.

    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you.
