  1. Moving iCloud Photos FOLDER


    Purely for personal organizational preferences, I want to move the "iCloud Photos" folder from MS Windows "Pictures" folder to a a subfolder under "Pictures," where I am attempting to centralize and accumulate the various files and folders that deal with web based storage and backup programs for photos.


    The internet seems full of instructions on how to do this that do not work on my PC. One is supposed to be able to change the location of various folders associated with iCloud through the "Options" selection in iCloud settings, but no matter what I enter there, "iCloud Photos" always reappears directly under "Pictures." What am I missing?


    The only thing I haven't yet tried is removing and reinstalling iCloud for Windows, because I generally just hate the "try this" approach. Need help!

    :)

    How to Upload Folders of Photos to Albums on iCloud?

    I'm trying to determine the best way to migrate multiple folders of photos on Windows 10 to iCloud.

    Currently, I'm copying each folder of photos to the iCloud Photos\Uploads folder, which successfully uploads the photos to iCloud, however, the photos do not appear in albums and are therefore no longer grouped.

    Is there a way to upload a folder of photos so that it appears in an album on iCloud, or do I have to manually create the album and move the photos into it after uploading?

    Also, after uploading the folder of photos, should I delete the folder from the Uploads folder?
