  1. Windows 10 Photo App and File Explorer Pictures


    Hi there

    I am trying to incorporate my older File Explorer Picture Files into albums on the Windows 10 App. Essentially I want to copy the individual folders onto the Photo App but I haven't been able to do this. I've gone to the Import tab and select the folder but it just says (what I already have) Add Folder to Pictures. It isn't copying or transferring over to an album in the App. Please could somebody help?

    Thanks

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. File Explorer Crashes and unable to access Photo App

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience caused to you while accessing the photos from Photo App, we will help you with this issue.

    I suggest you to copy the photos files to a different location and try to upload it as a profile picture on Outlook account and check if you are able to do it.

    If the issue still persist, suggest you to troubleshoot the Photo App.

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to run the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar.
    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • Select View all on the top left corner.
    • Click on Windows Store Apps.
    • Select “Advance” and click on “Run as Administrator”.

    • Click “Next” and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the troubleshooting process.

    If the issue persists then follow the below method:

    Method 2: I would recommend you to uninstall the Photo app
    using Windows PowerShell command and reinstall using the Windows store. Follow the below steps.


    • Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell in
      the search bar.

    • Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.

    • Enter the below command to uninstall the Photo app.
    • get-appxpackage *Microsoft.Windows.Photos* | remove-appxpackage
    After performing the above steps, install the Photo app from the Windows store.

    Reference: Refer to the following Microsoft article on
    Photos app for Windows help.

    Note: The steps for Windows 8.1 applies to Windows 10.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.
