    How to stop so many folders with iCloud Photos on PC


    I have a iPhone which I sync my photos etc to my PC.


    Tried asking this question elsewhere without Joy.


    How can I stop so many folders being created in my 'iCloud Photos - Downloads'.

    It appears the folders have duplicated images which is taking up so much space on the HD.


    Running Windows 10 - v1809 Home Edition

    :)

    How to stop so many folders with iCloud Photos on PC

    Prevent iCloud Photos Folder Being Auto-Created?

    I have iCloud for Windows v7.0.1.210 on Windows 10 version 1703. I only enabled iCloud Drive and web bookmark sync features. But somehow the iCloud Photos folder is created automatically every time I open the iCloud setting after I deleted it manually, especially annoyingly it got added to my Quick access list inside File Explorer.

    BTW, anyway to remove the iCloud icon from system tray on windows 10?
