  1. Photo Viewer Question

    I am finding it impossible to copy and paste from Photos. Am I overlooking something? I want to watermark my images, and am unable to, without emailing them to me, downloading them, then uploading them to my watermark program...too many steps! *Rolleyes there a way to make folders of the photos?

    Any help would be MOST appreciated!

    1 Is there any way of hiding the "Edit" bar at the top of screen as it impacts on viwing?

    2 I have a problem on making CD's in that portrait pictures do not show in correct orientation when shown on DVD recorder.

    To counter this, when using Photo Viewer with Win. 8.1/IE11, I turned these pictures 90 degree clockwise, then came out of the viewer & then re-entered & returned the pictures the correct way. This action made the pictures show correctly when played on the
    DVD M/c.

    Would the same procedure work with the Win. 10 Photo viewer?

    Hi John,

    1) I would like to inform you that there is no option to hide the Edit bar.
    I suggest you to access the photos in the full screen mode.

    2) For this issue, I would like to inform you that turning the pictures to 90 degree will work the same way on Windows 10 Photo Viewer.
    First make sure that the pictures are oriented correctly by using the Photo Viewer first and then burn it to the CD.

    Hope this information helps!

    Thank you.

    Photo Viewer Question

    Hi there

    I believe you're viewing your backedup photos? (i.e. Start > Photos > Collection) this is the backedup photos from your phone/tablet to onedrive, you can delete, view and share them, but you can't control them I think.

    if you are in fact looking at the Pictures in your library, then I'm not sure what's happening and maybe someone else could chip in.

  5. Thank you for your input, Monty.

    The images that I upload from my memory card into my desktop computer go directly into "Photos." I'm used to having them go into "Pictures," but I am not finding them there. There seems to be no option provided for putting them into a folder.

    Does this help to explain my problem?

    Am not sure, Windows 10 and Microsoft in general is doing new stuff (I haven't even used 8!) but that's why we're all here to learn together.

    What did you use - or more specifically - how did you download your pictures onto your desktop? personally I use copy and paste. and where are you downloading them from? phone, camera or tablet?

    Yup, you're backing it up to onedrive I believe.

    You have to go to This PC > your card => go to the folder where all the pictures are in => select the folder, copy, then go to "Pictures" on the left side of that window and copy the folder there.

    let me know how it goes

  9. Thanks, Monty! I'll give it a try and get back to you.

  10. Nope...the only photos I have in OneDrive are the ones I had before I bought this new computer with the Windows 10 upgrade. *Huh

  11. Monty...

    I don't have any of my new images appearing in my "Pictures" folders. They all immediately go directly into "Photos," the page with the white mountain background. *cry

    Hmmm... what you might want to do is this:

    Go into Settings>Devices>AutoPlay

    There you can choose to turn it off or choose a setting for it. I have it turned on and take no action.

    Maybe this might help in preventing it from automatically doing whatever it is doing.
