    Unwanted photo album

    My wife has a Win7 desktop machine that she uses for stuff brought home from work, but also keeps a collection of photos that she posts to Facebook, etc.

    Rather than let her deal with any fallout from an automatic Win10 upgrade While I wasn't around, I did it manually myself from a 1511 ISO. Apart from failing to carry over the installed Intel HD Graphics drivers (a common occurrence), things went fine.

    Last night she was using the machine, and paused for dinner while writing a lecture. From the other room we heard several barrages of musical chimes coming from the office. Each time I ran into her workroom and saw nothing new on the screen.

    After the 5th volley, I looked more closely; checking the notifications icon in the systray, and noticed that it had flagged new notifications. What were they? "Look at the photo album I created for you!!!". Five times. Geez.

    How to turn off this behavior, delete the "automatic" and unwanted albums, and prevent this from happening again? Thanks.

    I don't think you can turn off the automatic creation of albums. And if you delete the ones it's already decided to create on it's own accord, it just creates some more.

    I agree with you, it's stupid that you can't turn this 'feature' off.
