    iCloud Windows app not showing full Photos options - won't download


    I reinstalled Windows yesterday, and discovered that iCloud for Windows is now on the MS Store.
    After installing, the Photos options are not what they used (should?) be.
    I am not getting any syncing/downloading from my phone.
    Any ideas? I've attached the options I can see, which is not what they used to be.

    - - - Updated - - -

    It's OK, I see now. The folder has changed from Downloads to Photos in this new version.
    All is now good.

    :)

    How do I bulk download photos marked as favorite from iCloud?

    I have about 1000 photos in iCloud marked as favorite and I would like to download them in full quality all at once. So far, I found two options and none of them is good:

    1. Multi-select photos on iCloud and select download unmodified
      originals. This requires to click on all 1000 photos one by one and downloads .heic files which i further need to convert to jpg.
    2. Get iCloud for windows and download all the original files. However, this is very slow and I need to manually pick the favorites out of all files.

    • Uninstall and reinstall iCloud.
    • Make sure that your iCloud app is enabled to both your iOS devices and to your Windows 10 PC.
