    Moving Pics to Folders

    I have a boatload of pics on my main photos page, all in chronological order based on when I took them or saved them to the computer. I want to get them into folders for different categories. I have created the folders and am able to drag and drop the pics into each folder (when I am moving them it says "move to ____, not copy). Now the problem... when I open my photos they are still on the main page just like they were before! If I delete one off the main page it also deletes it out of the folder. How do I get rid of the ones off the main page that I have moved to a folder without deleting the pic completely?

    Move Users Folder Location in Windows 10  

    If not the best way to do that but at least the way I recommend:

    • "Empty" your user profile folders as much as you can, copying documents, pics, videos, music and all other personal data from all user profiles to external HDD. As following steps require you to relocate Users folder two times, the less data is left in user profile folders, the faster the relocation process. Important: Leave system folder AppData for each profile intact, do not empty / move its content!
    • Reverse the relocating, doing exactly as told in tutorial Method Two but this time relocating Users folder back to C: drive
    • Shut down the PC, replace the disk where you had Users relocated
    • Mount the new disk, boot to Windows, assign new disk the same drive ID letter than the old one had
    • Again, do as told in Method Two, now relocating Users to new disk
    • Restore the backed up personal user data from external drive to respective folders under each user profile
  3. move pics from downloads to pictures


    Windows offers a few other ways to copy or move files. To help you out with your concern, you may refer to the steps below on how to move files from the Downloads folder to your Pictures folder:

    • Right-click a file/files and click Cut.
    • Navigate to your Pictures folder.
    • Right-click your destination folder and choose Paste.

  4. Moving Pics to Folders

    how to move pics from emails to folder in my pics

    i am trying to answer my question as they have come back to say that they dont know how. I have chrome and it does most of this for you. Click on the pic in the email and download it. It will ask what you want to do. Check on save as.... It should
    now go down to the lower left corner. When you click this , one of the options is 'to see in folder'. See chrome saves it in your file manager. From there you just highlight the title of the pic - which can be a jpg #- and highlight my pics or pictures
    and it will go there. Then you can move it into a new folder or to another folder. Hope this helps. sue
