    What is the folder microsoft.windowscommunity


    Hello,


    I found out a folder microsoft.windowscommunity in my Windows 10 PC.


    What is the folder microsoft.windowscommunity 7553d135-46ac-405b-8152-14b1b0a39b18?upload=true.png


    It has copies of documents I emailed to recipients. Could this be a breach in security? What attachments from emails sent are doing in this folder? Are they being shared with someone?


    Any advice is welcome.

    :)

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    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date.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

    4. Enter a user name and hit next.

    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
