    Photo App

    Hi,In the Photo App amongst all my photos there are pictures of photo albums and calenders,anyone know what these are? There is an option to delete them,would it be safe to do so as they don't seem of any use.

    Yes. It's save to get rid of them.
    Slightly off topic.................
    Are you familiar with Windows Photo Viewer ?
    If you are, would you like to use it again ?
    If yes, here is the tutorial to restore Windows Photo Viewer:

    Thanks David,I use Photo Viewer,I upgraded from Win7 and fortunately it came with it.All my photo's are duplicated in the Photo App which I don't use much as I find it complicated so I set Photo Veiwer as my default App

    If you find Photo undesirable and you wish to get rid of it, you can actually uninstall it.
    Have a loo at this tutorial.
    I used it to uninstall Mail app and Photo.

    But then, you can just simply leave it alone and don't use it.

    David, I did once use Powershell to uninstall the Photo App and found that all my photo's disappeared from Photo viewer so did a Restore and all was well again, I don't like Mail or Photo App so I basically ignore them in favour of Windows Live Mail and Photo Viewer,Thanks again
