    Autoupload not working and now save to SkyDrive isn't either

    Went to the Microsoft Store yesterday and had them show me how to do a few things. One was how to upload and download photos more easily. Person at the store showed me how to turn on Autoupload to SkyDrive. Took some photos today and checked SkyDrive.
    They're not there. I also tried to save to SkyDrive from each individual photo in the camera roll. Said it was saving, but the photos STILL aren't in SkyDrive. How do I fix this?

    Hi guys, thanks for your replies , sorry for delay in getting back, am still struggling to sort it out, unfortunately when you are in your mid 70s it takes abit longer to digest stuff..when I try to download a picture from an e/mail etc I just cant understand why it only gives me the option of Windows picture viewer when its not available...why not to Photos or pictures which are listed in the features index thingy...sorry not very PC savvy....*Shock

    Your Welcome !
    From what i have read if you upgraded from Windows 7,8 or 8.1 to Windows 10 Windows Photo Viewer still be an option for most of your images. If you did a clean install wiping everything from old operating system then Windows Photo Viewer will only have options for image extensions .tiff and .tif

    What i am not sure to is the type of photos you are downloading from e-mail and there extensions, jpeg etc...

    What you can do is go into control panel open Default Programs, look under Set your Default Programs, scroll down list to the Photos app (left click once) on right side you can either " Set this Program as Default " for all files this app can open by default. You can also select on list Windows Photo Viewer(left click once) and select "Choose Defaults for this Program" to see what is listed there as checked in boxes.

    You need to change the default program for image files to Windows Photo Viewer if you want that to be used, otherwise you get the Photos app which I don't like at all.

    Let's recap.

    You are trying to save a photo from E-mail or from a Web site?
    If E-mail, what do you see whenb you right click on the photo?
    Also, if you left click and hold on the photo you should be able to drag it to the Desktop or wherever you want it. Same from a web site.

    Matters how photo is attached to an e-mail,usually within a link in e-mail once you open link you will see it and will get downloaded to whatever is default or set folder, documents or download folders. If on a Web site i just right click the image and select Save image, again goes to my download folder, unless it is compressed and has a download link. Your issues were with Windows picture viewer option instead of Photos app.

    How do I SAVE / UPLOAD photos

    Usually, r camera will come with a CD that has a program which automatically transfers photos from the camera to r computer. Sometimes, can usually find the camera in This PC (left pane of File Explorer where view all of r files) while it is plugged in and copy them directly from it.
