    Viber: suddenly started saving pictures to One Drive.

    Viber normally downloads received image files to %USERPROFILE%/Pictures/Viber folder. However, on one of my Windows 10 Pro x64 machines it suddenly started to download its images to OneDrive folder, under OneDrive/Pictures/Viber. Other machines still seem to work as before.

    What could be causing this? Is this a Viber setting or is this some new Windows behavior?

    photos from non-viber contacts are being saved


    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern and frustration you have been through. I will be glad to assist you.

    1. What do you mean by “non-Viber contacts”?

    2. What is the location of Photos being saved?

    3. Are you referring to Photo app or Picture folder?

    4. What is the make and model of PC?
    5. Did you install viber app from Windows store?

    I would like to inform you that all photos are saved by default to Picture folder by many software's. I would suggest you to contact Viber support and check if you can save the pictures from Viber to another location.

    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    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date.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.
