    Removing duplicate photos from Microsoft Photos

    Hi Tony,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Deleting photos from Microsoft Photos will delete the files from the original location. However, Microsoft Photos will only display the photos from the folders that are added to Photos application. You can remove the folders from Microsoft Photos that
    you don’t want. Follow the steps mentioned below:



    1. Open Microsoft Photos app.
    2. Click on the Ellipsis on the top right corner of the window and click on
      Settings.
    3. Under Sources, remove the folder that has duplicate photos by clicking on
      X.


    To remove the duplicate photos from the computer, please navigate to the location where the photos are saved and then you can delete the photos are duplicate.

  3. Photo App creating duplicates

    Hi Greg thank you for your response. They are not actually duplicated on my hard drive i.e in the folder in the file manager. They are just showing as duplicates within the app. I noticed in settings of the photo app that Google Drive is listed as a source
    so I think the app sees the same picture there and that is how it is getting duplicated in the app. I deleted that source with no change but I will wait until I take some more pictures to see it that could be the issue. -Thanks
