  1. Windows 10 Explorer Deleted Photos still show up in Photo App viewer


    Uploaded vacation photos from camera to external hard drive. Open Windows Explorer to cull the bad ones, extraneous/duplicates. Did that and when I opened up Photo App to view reduced picture set - they are all showing - even the deleted ones. When looking at the list in Explorer there are 17 pictures, the slideshow shows 25. All the deleted ones are still showing up.
    I created a new folder and moved only the 17 pictures to that folder and deleted the original one. Guess what? They still show up. Haunted by the bad photos which won't go away! Help - What am I doing wrong?

    :)

    Deleted Photos Still Show in Windows 10 Photo App

    Photos that I have deleted still appear when I use the Windows 10 Photo App though not when I use other apps within Windows 10 (e.g. using Photo Viewer).

    I've tried deleting the Photo App cache and that also hasn't worked.

    Just trying to figure out why the app is still showing the photos.

    Deleting photos in Windows 10 Photos app

    I've been going through photos in the Windows 10 Photos app and deleting some of the photos. When I go to File Explorer, the photos are no longer there, but they still show up in the Photos app if I go to that directory. I deleted some of them from the
    Recycle bin and they still show up in the Photos app. How do I completely get rid of them? Is it getting them from OneDrive? I have not intentionally saved anything to OneDrive, and when I look at OneDrive, it says there isn't anything there to delete (and
    nothing is in its Recycle bin. What do I have to do to delete photos so they are really gone and no longer show up in the Photos app?

    Hi and welcome:

    For starters: have you tried to reboot the computer?

    Just a thought,

  5. Yes have rebooted several times after trying various fixes. Each time the photos reappear.

    Maybe give it some time to refresh after opening the Photos app (look for the spinning arrows next to the refresh button). Alternatively, if the arrows aren't spinning, what happens if you press the 'Refresh' button and wait for the arrows to stop spinning.

  7. Refresh doesn't help. I am in Windows Explorer and delete the pictures. In that view they are gone. But if I double click any picture - it launches the Photo App to display and when clicking the small arrow on the side to advance to the next picture - the deleted ones show up even though the Windows Explorer folder doesn't show them anymore.
