    As to sending attachment, what I described to you is the "traditional" method that never fails anyone.
    It does not take long. You are just not used to it, that's all.
    I do have them into various individual folders by some categories, but while some of these folders are originally under the Pictures folder, when I got W10 - miraculously - all the new folders went into another Pictures folder right under the "OneDrive". So I decided to leave in OneDrive all individual folders of one category, and all the others leave them on the other regular Pictures folders. As you can see I have some complicated things here... lol!

    Regarding sending attachments.

    Test drive it by sending an attachment to yourself.
    If it works, try sending 2 or more photos as attachments.
    Just to get used to the procedures.

    It's a good idea that I'll be sure to do...after I send this letter with the attachments. Another reason for taking me long is that I must arrange the photos by certain categories rather than the alphabet which the system insists on doing, also trying to change, from the numbers the photos get, to my own phrases, and a few other details, but I'm advancing, slowly though... lol!

    Okay, I was able to do all those little details before sending and I put them into a folder. I made the first attachment of 4 items nicely. I highlighted them in the Pictures folder, I opened the letter, double clicked on the paperclip icon, and attachment done!

    But, when I did the same thing for another folder with 9 items to go on the same email, when clicking on the paperclip icon it took me to the 4 items that were already there instead of to the 9 items. So I tried deleting the 4 item attachment and repeated the process for the 9 items...with the same result. Too many items maybe? I wonder what I did wrong....

    I'll keep trying...

    When you click the paper clip the 2nd time, it takes you back to the folder with 4 photos already attached.
    On the lefts side is what we call navigation pane where you see Desktop, Pictures, Documents, Downloads etc etc etc.
    From the navigation pane, go to the folder with 9 photos > select the 9 photos > click Open > 9 more photos are attached.

    *** There is no need to double click the paper clip ****
    Use these steps...............
    1. Open a new email
    2. click the paper clip
    3. navigate to the folder
    4. select photos
    5. at the bottom, click Open.
    Photos are attached.

    Sending pictures from a photo app is Apple mentality dumbing down. Create an email, attach pictures, videos, sound files, and the kitchen sink. Send. Job done.

    Thank you.
    But we are way past the Photo app stage if you care to read over the replies.

    Oh David, they did open but as Album, not as Gallery. Where it says "Open as Gallery" is greyed out. Meantime I thought I'd attach again the 4 item folder, but now this one won't work either. I will restart the computer and try again (I hope I didn't catch one of those dreadful viruses I hear are lurking around.....)
