  1. Updating Changed Folder Picture to New One


    So I had decided to change the picture on one of my folders for music from one picture to another I had found. My real problem isn't how to change the picture on the folder, since I've already done that and have no problems viewing it on my laptop. My real issue is how do I transfer that folder with the new picture onto my phone (LG Q6)? I already have this folder on my phone, but I have removed it both from my phone AND from the laptop and created a new one, putting the new picture in place. But when I transfer this new folder onto my phone, the OLD picture is the one that shows up for this particular music folder.


    The only reason I'm changing pictures is so I don't have to look at the music icon when listening to music on my phone. I'd rather look at a picture of the artist or something related to them instead.


    I have tried everything I could think of, but this one folder is the only one that can't/won't change from the old picture to the new one. I've tried it with other similar music folders and they change no problem.


    I've even tried deleting thumbnails from my phone's DCIM folder in case this was an issue. I've restarted my phone numerous times to no avail. I'm at my wits end and don't know what else I can do.


    Any and all help is appreciated!

    :)

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder


    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.

    Picture User Folder vs Library Picture Folder / Add to User folder

    Hi,



    Form the issue description, I realize that you are trying to view your pictures in the default pictures library. To do so, you have to change the location of the folder that contains your pictures to the default pictures library folder.



    To view your pictures in the default pictures library, I suggest you to follow the steps below.




    • Right-click on the default Picture folder
      and click on Properties.

    • Navigate to Location tab.

    • Click on Move…. and select the folder that contains your pictures and click on
      Apply and then click on Ok.


    Hope the information helps. Kindly write back to us for further information on Windows. We will be happy to assist you.



    Thank you.
