Windows 10: Change settings for importing pictures and videos

    Change settings for importing pictures and videos


    When I connect an iPhone to my Win10 PC it's importing my photos to a location where I don't want them to go.

    How do I change this setting?

    It's frustratingly non-intuitive, and even the official Microsoft How-To page doesn't explain it in an understandable way. Help.

    Not using iTunes. Using Windows to import.

    They're going into a folder on my D: drive that I specified as a Photos location, because C: is a smaller SSD. But I have a separate subdirectory within that folder for iPhone photos where win7 used to put them. I'd like Win10 to do the same.
