  1. Windows explorer does not respond when opening pictures folder 700mb about 500 pictures


    My laptop core i5 having windows 10.

    When i opens a pictures folder it doesn't show all thumbnails. Takes a lot of time in loading folder. And explorer stucks. Even i couldn't move that folder. Explorer stops working.

    I already used safe mode, clean boot, sfc but problem is still.

    :)

    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    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date.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.
     
  3. Pictures in Windows 10

    Hi Sugar,

    Apologize for the late reply.

    Are you able to find other files and folders on Windows 10?

    I suggest you to have a look for Windows 8.1 pictures in Windows.old folder.

    Try the following steps:

    • Press Windows + E keys to open Windows explorer
    • Press C:\ Drive
    • under C: drive look for Windows.old folder
    • open users under Windows.old

    Try the search for pictures in here.

    Regards
