  1. Import photos into month and year subdirectories


    I have an iPhone that I sync with my desktop Windows 10 machine. I am having a problem when importing pictures. Previously, the photos went into subdirectories by year and month taken 2020-11, 2020-12 etc. This was all done automatically. I have been doing this for years. For some reason when I do this now the individual files are just all dumped into my main pictures folder - They don't go into any subdirectories. I prefer the old way as I could easily identify them by date. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Viewing photos by month & year

    I have just upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 and wondered if anyone can help me with a query please ?

    In Windows 7 I had all my photos of the grandchildren in one folder called 'Freddie & Anna' that was set up as follows:

    • There were no sub folders for months/years within the 'Freddie & Anna' folder.
    • When I clicked on the folder 'Freddie & Anna' the system displayed month & year 'icons' so that I could select the photos I wanted to view by clicking on the appropriate month & year 'icon'.
    • If my memory is correct I did this by using 'Arrange by' within the 'Freddie & Anna' folder.

    I have set up the following folder structure in Windows 10:

    and all the photos of my grandchildren are in the folder 'Freddie & Anna'.

    There are no sub folders for months/years within the 'Freddie & Anna' folder.

    When I click on the folder 'Freddie & Anna' I want my system to do what it did in Windows 7 and display the month & year icons but it does what I don't want and displays all the photos and groups them under the headings 'Earlier This Week', 'Last Week', 'Earlier This Month', Earlier This Year', and 'A Long Time Ago'. The system does this very slowly.

    In Windows 7 the system was pretty quick to display the month & year 'icons' and then to display the appropriate photos if I clicked on one of the month & year 'icons'.

    I would like to set up my folders/photos in Windows 10 so they are displayed as my system did in Windows 7.

    Can anyone help me to do this please?

    Changing month and year in photos

    Hi Farah, Thanks for the quick reply! However, I'm confused! In my photos there is a list of months and years that automatically change monthly until the end of the year. After December 1999 you have to change the month and year to January 2020 but I
    do not know how to do it. From then on it should change each month automatically according to date and time. Can you explain?
