    Photo Folders Gone Wonky :)


    I hope someone can help.

    Here is what I had up until a few days ago.

    A folder on my desktop with several dozen images and several dozen folders each with 10-100 images. All of the folders inside of this master folder shows the folder open with small previews of the contents. I creaet a new folder, add images and the same - icon is a preview of enclosed images. All good. The desktop folder has had its default icon changed to something I prefer. Has worked for a long, long time.

    Now as of a few days, if I create a new folder inside the master folder it has the icon of the master folder. The only way to change that is to go to right click properties, customize, restore default - or, change icon, restore defaults. Saving as applying this view to folders of this type changes ALL folders - even those set to details rather than large icons and does not seem to fix this issue.

    All worked for a long time. Any idea how to get back to where I would like to be? Thanks!

    Win 10 1903

    Let me add, this is only in this folder. If I create a new folder on the desktop and add images, it shows the preview icon as expected.

    If I drag that new proper folder from the desktop to this folder, it stays as expected. It is only NEW folders create in this folder that have the issue.

    :)

    Photo app is gone


    @Lenoveo, it's actually named 'Photos' with an 's'. Is it really missing, or is it just the Tile on Start that's gone? Try typing photos in the Cortana/Search box next to Start and see if it finds it. If it does appear in the list you can right-click on it and 'Pin to Start' (or the taskbar). If it doesn't, try Brink's 'App reset' tutorial.
