  1. Photos - Facial Recognition Progress

    I have been investigating the facial recognition of the photos app. So far, so good, but I have no way of knowing when/if it is actively performing facial recognition and the progress of searching all my photos.

    1) How do I know if the process is running? Do I have to have the program open for it to be processing?

    2) How do I find out its progress? I'd like to know the standard "28273 of 92827 photos processed". Can this be found anywhere?

  2. Windows Photo and facial recognition.

    I'd like to reawaken this thread, as the original question was not answered.

    I had read articles suggesting that the Photos app wouldgain facial recognition as part of the creators update, but now the update is arriving, this does not seem to be in the list of enhancements.

    As a user still of MS Photo Gallery, I'm eagerly awaiting this function so that I can streamline the apps needed to manage/view my photos.

    Hello Bill,

    We need to do further investigation on your concern so that we will know why the facial recognition quit working:

    • Have you recently made any changes/updates prior to this issue?
    • Is there an error message when you try to sign using facial recognition?
    • What is the make and model of your computer?

    In the meantime, I would suggest that you perform the troubleshooting steps in this

    We will wait for your response.
