  1. Photos Album created within photos app Windows 10 not syncing to onedrive


    I created a photo album using the photos app in windows 10 but for some reason it is not showing as an album in onedrive. Other albums I've created in the past do appear in both photos app and onedrive. But this recently created album does not. Only shows in photos app in Windows 10. Any suggestions??

    :)

    Why did the photos app auto-create a random photo album?

    The automatic album creation is a new feature:

    (Source: Microsoft documentation.) It didn't add all the photos taken on that date because it thought some were too similar to others:

    Date and time are definitely taken into account when grouping the photos; a CNET article suggests there might be more complex logic too:

    The location would be determined from information embedded in the picture by the device that took it.

    Concerning the uninvited appearance of the app: That seems to be a bug experienced by many people with the management of Universal app processes. For some, it's caused by a certain version of DisplayFusion.

    where is newly created photo album

    Hi William,

    if you are creating the photo album in the Windows Photos App and are looking for its physical location - there is none . . .

    A photo album in that app is basically just stored as a list of references to the photos locations, it does not actually create a folder of photos in the background

    What you can do is export the Photo album to OneDrive if you use OneDrive, by clicking the upload button (upwards facing arrow)

    Or just create a new folder on your Desktop, select all the photos in the album and drag them onto the new folder
