Apps :: Photos App Doesn't See Images Located In Google Drive Folders

Feb 10, 2016

I backup photos from my phone to Google Photos which then automatically syncs them to my hard drive to a folder in Google Drive. The folder containing these images in Google Drive has been included in the Pictures library, but the Photos app doesn't see them and says "No readable photos, videos or folders found." I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Photos app. The pictures show up fine in Windows Photo Gallery. Does the Photos app has always ignored images in Google Drive or is this a recent development?

Search Doesn't Find Files - At Least In Google Drive Folder

Sep 19, 2015

Windows finds files containing 'hello'

I press Start
I type the filename of any files I know exist in my Google Drive folder (c:/users/Luke/Google Drive)
nothing appears.

It says "Windows is still indexing some files. This might not be everything just yet."

Thing is, if I go to Indexing Options, it clearly says
"Indexing complete."
and there's no HDD activity (and it's had ages to rebuild the index)...

...oh and I rebuilt the index (~500,000 files).

The best workaround I've found is switching off Indexing (which reveals files in Google Drive folder, but now searching the whole computer takes forever)

Installation :: Want To Change Which Drive Windows Is Located On

Jul 29, 2015

I'm sitting on my windows 7 here, ready to upgrade to windows 10 with the "Get Windows" app.

One complication though is that I'm running on an old harddrive. One of those simple SATA disks.

I got my hands on a new SSD disk which I would prefer to have windows on.

So, How could I in the simplest way get windows 10 and have it installed on my new SSD?

Should I upgrade to windows 10 to begin with?

How To Put Imported Photos Into Folders / No Links To Choose Photos

Dec 14, 2015

[Desktop Dell Inspiron 560 4gb RAM; high speed cable; MS Windows10
64bit; Windows Live Mail 2012; MS Word Pro 2003; Mozilla Firefox; Avast
AV; Windows Media Player; Adobe Reader; Adobe flash Player]

After a long struggle to import my pix from the camera to Win10 and finally succeeding, I've now another mystery

1. How to put the imported 10 or so photos into a folder? I did it with another bunch of imported photos and now I can't remember how I did it though I tried and tried..

2. How can I pick out the ones I want to send (and how to send them by email?) as I prefer not to delete the ones I won't send, to avoid later regrets. I don't even know how to delete any individual photos....

MS keeps everything a secret - no links to choose photos, or delete them, or send them, or change the order in which they are arranged, etc. I had come to learn photos in Win7 with "Photo Gallery" after a long time - now I'm condemned to the same torture on the new windows!

Images From Camera Roll Blurry In The New Photos App

Jul 20, 2015

I just noticed something odd tonight when browsing through my photos in Windows 10 10240. Almost all the pictures from my camera roll are blurry / low res when viewing in the new photos app. I compared them side by side on my other PC right next to it running 8.1 pro and it is night and day. The same pictures appear crisp and clean in the traditional windows photo viewer. I know that i have two different monitors with different resolutions but i never noticed a problem before when i had 8.1 on the pc that now has windows 10.

I think this is a real problem with the app in windows 10 because a) when i zoom into those photos that are blurry they become clear when zoomed in enough and b) it is very noticeable, something that i never picked up before when i was on 8.1. Now when i view wallpapers or downloaded images from the internet they seem to be clear so it doesnt really make much sense why it is just my camera roll pictures from my Lumia 929.

Customization :: Slideshow - Select Images Not Folders

Nov 17, 2015

When making a slideshow in Windows 10 for the lock screen and the desktop background can you select individual images from folders instead of selecting an entire folder? Win 7 could do this and i used it and liked it a lot.

It's not a huge deal but i didn't want to make copies of the images to put in a "slideshow" folder and also leave them organized in their original folder so i can actually track them down later.

Is There Any Way Can Move Photos Within Folders

Nov 24, 2015

With a previous version of Windows which I had (maybe XP?) I could move photos into a different order within a folder just by clicking and dragging. Windows 10 will not allow me to do this - the only way to reorder is to change the names of each photo so that they are in the order I want -

Administrator Permission Needed To Save Photos / Files To Own Folders

Aug 24, 2015

Once it was my turn to gain the free Windows 10 installation I went straight ahead and everything went well except when I went to save a photo to My Photos. Windows 10 began repeatedly asking for "administrator permission" to save to my OWN folders on my OWN laptop. My PC was not in a Homegroup, neither was it in a network of other PC's....I WAS the administrator!

If you encounter this problem (and many will) you may want to try my solution which after exhausting all other avenues including disabling inheritance and mucking about with Permissions, this does indeed work.

Windows 10 and Microsoft seem to think all PC's are networked (they are not) and so the solution is to join the Homegroup with yourself as the only member, that way you become "administrator" and gain back control of your files.

Start menu (bottom left) - type "Homegroup" in search box and then click on "settings" - click "Homegroup" - then follow instructions to set up a new Homegroup and make a note of the password it generates. Chose what folders to 'share' or not and then you will become homegroup administrator with full permissions.

Laptop Doesn't Boot Because OS Is On D Drive Instead Of C Drive

Oct 18, 2015

My laptop doesn't boot because OS is on E: drive instead of C: drive

When I try to boot it up (it somehow boots up as windows 8.1 instead of my OS windows 10), it gives a BSoD and shows the error code 0xc000021a. I created a bootable USB drive with windows 10 pro on it, but it shows my OS as windows 8.1 instead of 10, and it doesn't allow me to restore or do a startup repair, because they both fail.

Booting up:

Living Images Show As Still Images

Dec 22, 2015

Before reverting Lumia 640 back to WP8.1 and Lumia Camera, I was being bugged by Windows Camera Living Images (shortly LI). It seemed that camera took just still images. I don't like a camera I can't trust.

Today I took some LI with 8.1. Lumia Camera is faithful to the setting and takes video clip every time. But how to view them on W10 PC? No way. So I opened one succesfull W10M LI (visible in W10 PC and phone) in order to duplicate the structure with 8.1 LI files, but the container is more than just simple zip, maybe a JPG with zip content added into it.

Then I noticed that failed W10M LIs from last Saturday (nice christmas lights in a shopping center with "dropping" lights) also had correct LI naming and they were the right size (around 3.5-4MB when still image is <2MB). I unzipped content and - living.jpg and living.mp4 were there. One image can be found at onedrive for those who are interested.I have also some other pictures with LI naming but the size is too small and no zip content in them.

How is it possible that LI images are created by the camera but neither phone nor PC are capable to show them?Is there a way to create W10-supported LI from WP8.1 LI files? App or batch file? Creating zip file and appending it to jpeg file does not seem to work...

Apps :: How To Open Multiple Images In Same Instance Of Photo Viewer

In the previous versions of Windows it was possible to select multiple pictures in a folder and when I hit enter, it opened a single instance of Photo Viewer. Then I could go left or right and it only showed me the pictures I selected. In Windows 10 however, selecting multiple pictures and hitting enter opens up multiple instances of Photo Viewer.
