Does anyone else have problems downloading photos from the camera to One Drive , yes that part is plain sailing actually but you try finding the darn photos once downloaded.    Why dont they just go straight into your pictures folder,   mine seems to go off into space and by trial and error I manage to find them again.

Women dont nag they just

I had Windows10 on my desktop but reverted to 7 after finding too many faults with the new OS.
If you know the name of the image you saved you can use the 'search' facility to locate it. Once you know where it is then, all future downloads should (will) be in the same folder.

I use a Panasonic camera. And Windows 10 on a Surface Pro3 ( new in August now already superceded by Pro4) and my pictures go straight into the Photo file. BUT that is in the tablet mode. Is your hardware both desktop and touchscreen? In it's operation.

I think we have sussed it.    My mistake was I was clicking on One Drive whereas the photos were being saved in my pictures folder.   Now it is not as simple as looking in your pictures folder, you have to click on your name on the left hand side and then click pictures, it will bring up the last 3 months worth, ie 9.10 9.11 9.12 then you click on the December date and the photos are there.

All I can say is bring back Windows 7 where you downloaded and it automatically went into the pictures folder without all of this faffing about.

Will let you know if it works the second time.

Happy Boxing Day.

Windows 10 is a lot more flexible than earlier versions. You now have Quick Access which allows you to go to any folder with one click.
Instead of using the Start button, open File Explorer and navigate to the Pictures Folder. Click on Pin to Quick Access and now you will always have a one click to the Pictures Folder whenever you open File Explorer.

One Drive is Cloud Storage. Pictures downloaded from cameras do not normally go there. They are stored in your computer (as in Windows 7). If you are having a problem finding the pictures folder, click first on Libraries and you will see it there.

When you download from the camera you should have the option to tell the computer where to store the pictures and what to call them. Making a sensible choice here is key to finding them again. Don't let the computer decide for you, make your own choice and life will be a lot easier. This applies to all versions of Windows not just 10.

Hope this helps. If you are having problems, the Ludham Computer club is always happy to help and we offer free one to one tuition on all computer matters. PM for details.

Best wishes

There are too many bugs in 10 which is why I reinstalled 7. Many drivers, such as those which are required by my printers are not available in 10, for example.
I have kept 10 on my laptop so, as updates are applied, I can assess the reliability of the OS.
I still find that the easiest and fastest way to find anything is to use 10s search facility.

I just realised that I might have implied that Windows 10 files things differently from earlier versions of Windows. This is not the case. Windows 10 is no different from Windows 7 in the way that pictures and other things are filed. In fact it is not really any different to Windows XP.
The main difference is that you now have lots more options and it is more flexible, but the the filing system is the same.

I have been using Windows 10 for a while now and I have not had any problems with it. I certainly would not go back to Windows 7. I miss a few of the features of Windows 8 but there are plenty of other ways of doing things.

At the Ludham Computer Club, I often deal with beginners. Those who started on Windows 8 find Windows 7 impossible to use. It all depends on what you are used to or what you learned on. However, Windows 8 people seem to have little problem moving to 10 which has many similarities.

As I said before, if anyone is in the Ludham Area, we are always happy to help. It is free, one to one and we will deal with any subject.

I hope this clarifies what I said.

All I say is that this would never happen with Linux.
