    Photo download mystery

    Prior to the "new" windows 10 update, I was able to upload new photos to my Documents and they would show in a new folder with the current date.
    Now that I have updated my windows 10, this has changed, and my photo files go directly to \OneDrive\Pictures they show as individual files and not in a folder.
    Now, I can change it to download to my "Documents", but not to a new dated folder, also, when I download more photos at a later time if goes back to OneDrive\Pictures again.
    Is there a way I can make all photo downloads (default) to my documents and into a new dated folder as before??

    Downloading photos in Windows 10

    Downloading from Panasonic digital camera.

    I have followed the steps but "Import/Export photos doesn't appear in the dropdown list. Since this is the first time I am downloading into this computer with Windows 10 it was suggested that I need to load new drivers but I can't seem to find them.

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild

    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done Photo download mystery :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.

    We apologize for the delay in response.

    I suggest you to run the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter by following the steps provided below:

    • Type “Troubleshooting” in search box and press Enter.
    • Click on View all on top left pane.
    • Select “Windows Store Apps” from the list and follow the prompts for troubleshooting.

    Also, suggest you to check if there are any updates available for the Photos App and install the same and check for status.

    Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.
