    I cannot find my picture folders.


    I can find a Picture folder, and some of my pictures are in the folder, but not all of them.

    If I go to Start, File Explorer, On This PC, and then search JPG or IMG, then I can see some of my missing pictures, but nowhere close to the number of pictures that are on my computer. I also know the name of one of my folders. When I search for that name, the pictures show up, but again, I cannot find the actual folder!

    Can anyone help? There is one picture that I desperately need to find.

    :)

    Where is Windows 10 folder that contains pictures for the slideslow?

    I apologize for seeming like an idiot - but I'm seeing photos in my slideshow that I cannot find at all in my Pictures folder. When I got to "This PC" (as opposed to selecting Pictures under the OneDrive option) - and I look at the properties it still
    says it is pulling the pictures from C:\Users\laura\OneDrive\Pictures. I've gone through every picture in that folder and I cannot find several pictures that are showing up in the slideshow. In Windows 8 it was very easy to find the folder - I am very frustrated
    with this as I need one of these pictures ASAP so I can make a print of it. I've gone through the folder 3 times and they aren't in there.

    Retrieving pictures that were all placed in specific folders

    My question I had about five picture folders with pics in them that I accidentally unpinned should I do a system restore to get the folders and pics back or is there another way I can folders and pictures back ? Or will I have to start all over and try
    and find the pictures. At this time I cannot find all of my pictures only some of them.

    I cannot find my picture folders.

    - Control Panel-> File Explorer Options-> Hidden files and Folders
    - Check recycle bin
    - Make backups.

    Install Everything Search. Once it's built it file/folder index (10 to 20 seconds) it has almost 0 impact on system performance.

    Type any part of a file or folder name and it will show you all occurrences of that file/folder.
    Right click on it and select Open path to see it in File Explorer.

    Just go to your user account under C, it should bring up everything and tell you where they are.

    You must not be storing them in your picture folder correctly if they are not there.
