Windows 10: A way to remove 'Camera Roll' & 'Saved Pictures'

    A way to remove 'Camera Roll' & 'Saved Pictures'


    I found it annoying when I found a library that I don't need. It looks un-aesthetically pleasing and ruin my library. I visit my library often so it's quite disturbing to find an unwanted useless library. If I delete it, it will probably come back on the next restart. I know it's kind of a minor problem, but I want to know is there a fix for this.

    Just right click on them and remove. I did and mine did not return. Welcome to The Windows Ten Forums. Enjoy your stay.

    Yeah, because you compacted LIBRARIES. Click on the "+" and presto, they are back.

    Trying out 10 again. Found the solution to this this time. You must uninstall the windows photo and camera apps using powershell.

    These are the apps that keep recreating these folders and once removed, you can delete "Camera Roll" and "Saved Pictures" and they will not return.
