Windows 10: Delete "Camera Roll" & "Saved Pictures" - Win 10
That should be "Pictures" not "Photos"
Not sure if you got your answer but I found a way. The Photos application is built in and this is what re-installs those two folders. I don't use it so I deleted the application. To do so, follow this link and you'll have all the info you needed.
How to Uninstall Windows 10s Built-in Apps (and How to Reinstall Them)
P.S. I subscribed to this forum so I could share the knowledge.
All the best!
still no real PERMANENT solution for this annoyance?
I actually did this and rebooted. They did not come back.
Personally I think it's silly to have "Camera Roll" and "Saved Pictures" libraries when you could just have folders within the already existing "Pictures" library...
Edit: They eventually did come back.

Move to OneDrive
If you are sure you want to get rid of them, you can move them to OneDrive (where they cannot be found for some reason). Right click on the folder, select properties, go to the location tab, press move and select OneDrive. A few warning messages will appear. Click ok, and they should be moved and hidden (again, OneDrive does not show them for an unidentified reason). Make sure you no longer want them before doing this.
I deleted one drive hopping they will disappear; I can not change the location of a Libary though
As these are system folders, they have a location tab... . Why not use the Location Tab to change the location to somewhere that does not annoy you.
Right-click the offending folder, select a new path where you can live with the folder (somewhere you won't see it, eg create a System Junk folder in your user folder). Click OK, "Yes" for the folder to be created if it does not exist there, "Yes" for contents to be moved. Done.
... Or, you could stuff both folders in a blank/nameless folder, just in case!
That way, when you do sync your new Windows Phone, the items will show up!
why is there no real solution here
[I read all these forums and there all the same...people offering solutions with back and fourth messages but no one really seems to know what they are talking about. Where is the real information ?? if i ask a question like how to delete the system, folders in my libraries then please someone tell me how to do it and dont just say try this and this I want a real solution and in one reply not 24 messages that takes 4 weeks
In Windows 10, how I do not display the "Life at a glance" and "Play and explore" columns of the Start menu?
I have a non-Windows 10 specific problem. I want to delete a Windows.old folder and it is owned by the Administrators group to which I belong. I actually use the built-in-Administrator-account with UAC completely turned off via registry hack....
I have been under the impression that Win 10 may be like an upgrade so you don't have to re-install all your desktop programs. If it is a "refresh" what a pain :(
If it is an upgrade will it kill Windows Media Center or might it actually survive...
I've installed Build 10041 and upgrade to 10049 three times now, each time I was able to do a search for Windows Update or Sound which would show me the correct results but this time, I'm not getting the right results. In the past I would do a Reset...
I'm new user of W10 10041 x64 and i need your help for little custom.
Can you help me to delete " OneDrive " in " This PC " ?
