    Using a tablet as a stand alone Digital Photo Album for an elderly person


    I'm not sure where to ask my question, so here goes. I have spent months scanning my 80+ year old uncle's life's worth of slides, converting them to .jpg files and saving them in folders and subfolders on a hard drive. I would like to create a digital photo album out of a tablet that he would be able to sort through and view the folders. We are talking an octogenarian that on a good day can operate a flip phone, so it has to be a simple presentation. And the photos are already in folder structure so creating new albums and importing them individually will take several more months. He does not have WiFi, so I don't need to be able to upload remotely - I plan to load the files and have him use it as a stand alone/unconnected photo viewer. So does anyone know of a good solution or at least point me in the right direction of where to ask my question? Surely I can't be the first person trying to do something like this for an older relative? Thanks. - h

  2. photo albums

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1. Could you please briefly explain the procedure that you have followed to setup an album using Windows 10?
    2. Which application are you using to display the album?
    3. Which version of Windows is running on your device?


    Refer the article Which Windows operating system am I running
    to provide the details.



    If you’re referring to Photos app, I suggest you to refer the section “Help the app find more photos” from the article
    See all your photos
    for the steps.





    Hope it helps.

    Hi,
