  1. picture library is not showing subfolders any longer windows 10 pro v 2004


    since the last update i can no longer arrange by month / day etc as it will only show photos available in the root directory of each path in the photos library.


    example c:/users/abcd/pictures

    but not c:/users/abcd/pictures/2020


    for example 2020 sub folder has 999 photos 14 sub folders, but does not show up in pictures library. the library only shows 179 pictures for the entire path.

    Problem with location of Pictures library after making pictures available on OneDrive

    Thanks Rhina

    I did what you suggested but it ended up making OneDrive the Pictures library. This may have something to do with the way i originally moved the Pictures folders to OneDrive. I probably should explain:

    Because there already was a (fairly empty) Pictures folder under OneDrive (automatically set up I think when transferring a few Ipad photos to PC via OneDrive) I had moved the top level Pictures folders into D/users/myname/OneDrive rather than moving
    the Pictures folder itself. This was probably a bit stupid but I subsequently moved the top level Pictures folders into that pre-existing Pictures folder on OneDrive and that's how we got to where we are today.


    To continue after that diversion. Following the restore you suggested, the pictures folder under Libraries was still wrong but it looked a lot better ie it was no longer offering me a choice of locations for Pictures folders and, instead was just showing
    me all the top level folders for what it (wrongly) thought was the Pictures folder. But it was still not appearing directly under This PC.

    My next step was to go into Properties option for Libraries/Pictures. Here I simply added the correct location D/users/myname/OneDrive/pictures and deleted the location D/users/myname/OneDrive which at that time was the current location.

    So, on the Positive side:

    • Libraries/Pictures now shows what I would expect ie my top level Pictures folders

    But, on the negative side:

    • Pictures still does not appear under This PC, unlike Documents, Videos, Music etc
    • in the Photos app, if I go to Folders option, it shows the folder as OneDrive, not OneDrive/Pictures even though, if i go into "choose where to look" it is correctly showing OneDrive/Pictures as the location. Obviously i can still get to the photos I need
      but it's an extra unnecessary step
    That's where i am currently.

  3. Library subfolders not auto applying view settings

    Same thing just happened to me just now, with the latest autoupdate of windows. Previously I have a "list" view of my files and folders (because it's easier to find and move files in this manner) in the documents
    and videos LIBRARY, and all of the subfolders also showed "list" view; but after the update, everything changed in view style; and when I arranged the top folders on the library, the subfolders and files inside still retained it's previous view (which is Large
    Icons). Is there already a remedy to this?

    picture library is not showing subfolders any longer windows 10 pro v 2004

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
