  4. Microsoft Photos Application only saving as copy

    Photo editor saves copy which is partially hidden from documents

    Hi DHsurrey,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    In order to get clarity on this issue and assist you with appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the answers to the questions below.

    1. Are you facing this issue only with Photo Editor 10 application?
    2. Are you directly opening Quick Access and clicking on Documents or opening Quick Access within the Photo Editor 10 application?

    I suggest you to post a Screenshot,
    where the properties of the documents folder is showing as hidden.

    Note: Please don't capture any personally identifiable information within the screenshot.

    Meanwhile, try the below methods and check.

    Before trying the below methods, I suggest you to open the
    Photo Editor application > Select a photo > Click on All files above
    Open and check if you are able to see the photos.

    Method 1:
    Resetting The Photo Editor 10 Application.

    1. I suggest you to try resetting the Photo Editor 10 application by going to
      Settings > Apps > Search for Photo Editor 10.
    2. Click on Photo Editor 10 application > Click on
      Advanced options > Click on Reset.
    3. Please reproduce the issue after resetting the application.

    If resetting the application doesn't help, then follow Method 2.

    Method 2:
    Creating New User Account.

    I suggest you to Create A New Administrator
    User Account
    and check if you are facing the same issue in the new user account.

    Note: Your user data will be in
    C:\Users\YourUserName.

    We’ll be waiting for your response.
