    Problems organizing photos.

    A bit of background first, I'm 84 yrs old, and to be honest, I am getting more stupid every day. An aside, getting older does make working with your mind harder, okay at least I find that to be true!~

    I have "Photos" in Pictures, Documents, Canon picture, Photo Room, some in all but others in just one place. place.

    So my problem to start.: I have several photos on my "documents" but not in my "Pictures" I'd like to clean out documents of photos and just have them all in my Pictures. If I got that far, I'd take the next step but for me that may already be a Bridge too far.

    Hello dearelliot, when your in your Documents folder at the top right corner you will have a search box,
    if you type " .png " or " .jpg " or " .jpeg " or " .bmp " without the
    quotes you will find all the pictures / images you have in that folder
    After that you can simply select all of them and either rightclick and choose cut, or use the quick command, (CTRL + X)
    Then navigate to the picture folder you wish to have the pictures in and paste them. ( CTRL + V )

    Are all very common file formats for images / pictures, there are more but with these you should be fine :)

    Hi, if you can use a PC at 84, you're doing well!

    If you know where your various photos are, you can find them and move them to appropriately named folders in Pictures.

    Here I have my source folder on the left, Pictures open on the right.

    I've right clicked a photo, held the button down, and dragged to folder Uplay on the right. I can now let go of the button and click 'copy' or 'move'.

    If I want, I could select multiple files in the left window and do the same.
    (left click empty space and drag to select multiple files, or left click, say, the top file in a list, scroll down and SHIFT + left click to select a range).

    That's one way. Another is to copy and paste them (CTRL C, CTRL V, or CTRL X, CTRL V to move them).

    If you want to easily find, for example, all jpg files on your PC to find any left over photos, a free tool like Everything by void tools or Locate32 helps- scans all your files once, then type jpg and all will be listed:
