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
    Very frustrating
    @JEDISKT welcome to Ten Forums

    First of all, for a lot of things Windows, there is no one solution fits all.

    Second, the members here are just every day normal users, that come here on their free time, to help others with their experience,
    or to share a solution they have found that works for them, or get help themselves.
    Even the Microsoft MVP's and Community Contributors, do not know everything about Windows 10(with the exception of @Brink maybe).

    Third it can take time to troubleshoot a problem if the "normal" solution doesn't work, as every PC is different, every user has it set up different, and has different software installed that can cause problems with Windows.

    And lastly with an attitude like that, it would surprise me if anyone offers to help you.

    In my system they do not reappear. I deleted them 10 minutes ago, I have rebooted four (4) times since then, and they never appeared again. The only App I keep in my system is the Store.

    I just took a Gateway Notebook from WinVista through Win7 w/SP1 to Win10 and didn't have the Camera Roll Folder in Pictures until I activated the Win10 Webcom application on it and took a test picture. I guess if I never ever used the Webcam I could delete that Folder.

    yes,i guess you could,but its only a folder,so if you cant delete it I wouldn't worry about it...it will just sit there taking up about 1bit of hdd spce

    Thank you Keith. Your solution (from the link) worked for me.

    After I ran the reg file in I had to close and re-open explorer to see the result.

    Before I applied this solution every time I loaded the Photos app the deleted libraries would reappear.

    Many thanks again.

    That's kinda strange. If you have 100 of your own folders inside Pictures folder, then the addition of two extra folders is unfortunate, but probably is not a big deal. But for those who only have like two or three of their own folders under Pictures (or none at all), these folders are a huge annoyance, period.

    And it is not just about quantities too. It is about qualities. It is about the general competence of those who write that software. The hard rule is very simple: implicitly creating anything inside user folders is strictly prohibited.

    There was a time in XP era when various software vendors had that brain-dead habit of dumping their internal save folders into Documents folder (!!!). Luckily, such vendors were quickly grabbed by their neck and shoved face-first into their own crap. Today, most software vendors seem to have learned the lesson. They strive to save their internal data in designated areas instead of dumping it into Documents. (Yet, there's still a fair number of crap-grade vendors like Blizzard or Adobe, who's general professional competence is still stuck back in early 2000's. These simpletons are still doing this.)

    The rule is, again, very simple and very indisputable: no storing anything in user's private areas without specific request/permission from the user.

    Sadly my pictures library reappeared after an hour or so

    I agree with you, and would very much appreciate it if suppliers would provide options to move such things elsewhere.

    I think two reasons for not providing these kind of options... 1) the great unwashed might not understand it and might subsequently mess it up, and 2) IT people are mostly members of the great unwashed
