  1. Win10 trying to import non-existent photos from android phone


    When I plug in, I see a bunch of "photos", without images, just the default icon thing. It always fails to import them, and I know there is nothing on the phone to import, as I searched it thoroughly.
    Any way I can wipe the slate clean, whatever the slate is, so I don't have to see these and uncheck them every time?
    Thanks for your brains.

    :)

  4. Win10 trying to import non-existent photos from android phone

    No option to import photos from Android

    I am attempting to download some photos from my Android phone onto my computer via USB. When I plug my phone into my computer, the Windows Photos app automatically opens and shows a list of all photos on my phone. It says "Select items to import from."
    However, there is no button or option to actually start the import of the photos. It has only started doing this recently, and in the past there would be a button for me to start the import after choosing my photos. I haven't changed any settings or downloaded
    anything in the past few days so I'm not sure what would be causing this problem.
