  1. Photos app, and or file explorer


    This drive me crazy and I have always been pretty good with the computer. This one has me beat though.

    If I take a photo at 7:59 pm and another one at 8:01pm they will go to different folders on my PC. The one from 7:59 will go to a folder created with that days date. For instance today photos went to 10/09/2019.
    But the ones taken after 8:00 on 10/09/2019 will go to a folder with tomorrow's date, as shown in the photo. Even though the time and both cameras and the PC are set to the correct time. you can see that time in the file properties.
    Any guess lol

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience caused to you while accessing the photos from Photo App, we will help you with this issue.

    I suggest you to copy the photos files to a different location and try to upload it as a profile picture on Outlook account and check if you are able to do it.

    If the issue still persist, suggest you to troubleshoot the Photo App.

    • Select Troubleshooting.

    • Click on Windows Store Apps.
    • Select “Advance” and click on “Run as Administrator”.

    • Click “Next” and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the troubleshooting process.

    If the issue persists then follow the below method:

    Method 2: I would recommend you to uninstall the Photo app
    using Windows PowerShell command and reinstall using the Windows store. Follow the below steps.


    • Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell in
      the search bar.

    • Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.

    • Enter the below command to uninstall the Photo app.
    • get-appxpackage *Microsoft.Windows.Photos* | remove-appxpackage
    After performing the above steps, install the Photo app from the Windows store.

    Thanks for replying spunk. That's the 'alphabetical' list I was referring to, none of these apps are in that 'All apps' list. Any more suggestions?

  4. Photos app, and or file explorer

    1.63 gb in empty photos app

    Hi James,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    • Is there any hidden files and folders in photo app?
    This issue could be caused due to a corrupted system file. I would suggest you try these steps and check:

    I would suggest you try the restore library option and check if it helps. Please back up all the files in the library before trying this, just to make sure you don’t lose any files. Refer these steps:

    • Open Windows explorer
    • In the left panel, locate Library and right click on it
    • Click “restore default libraries” option
    • Check if the issue persists.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
