Windows 10: Windows 10 will NOT save system files!

    Windows 10 will NOT save system files!


    Hello
    I am new to these forums so I hope you will bear with me if I have the wrong forum etc. I have had Windows 10 installed for a while and decided the other day to save anew picture from my webcam for my personal communications etc. I did get the webcam on and clicked take picture. When I went to use the picture it was not where the systemsaid it would be. Nothing had been saved. After checking the properties of the directory the system said I did not have permission to use that directory.
    I also tried to download a PDF to my download directory and the file was not saved for the same reason.

    Their is obviously a permission problem from going to Windows 10. I previously had Windows 7 Home.

    I hope someone can help. Thanks in advance for any and all.

    Media imported with a camera or scanner is usually dated and imported into your Pictures folder. Unless your Webcam has proprietary software that supercedes the default locations. Check in your Documents folder for any dated folders.

    If you used a browser other than IE or Edge, it could have saved your PDF file into the Local Temp folder in Appdata/Local/Temp. Look in there for your webcam media too.

    I am using a Logitech 120 video camera. It comes with its own software of course. I have used it for about 5 years. I primarily use Edge and Firefox as my browsers since I got Windows 10.

    I cannot find and appdata directory. Where should it be located at?

    Thanks for your answer.

    Just type in %appdata% in your File Explorer. You should end up in C:\Users\<account name>\AppData\Roaming.

    From there you can just click on AppData and then go to where you need to be.

    Went to the Onedrive Pictures folder instead maybe? Also look for a Camera Roll folder.
