Windows 10: Windows 10 Explorer Deleted Photos still show up in Photo App viewer

    Windows 10 Explorer Deleted Photos still show up in Photo App viewer

    Uploaded vacation photos from camera to external hard drive. Open Windows Explorer to cull the bad ones, extraneous/duplicates. Did that and when I opened up Photo App to view reduced picture set - they are all showing - even the deleted ones. When looking at the list in Explorer there are 17 pictures, the slideshow shows 25. All the deleted ones are still showing up.
    I created a new folder and moved only the 17 pictures to that folder and deleted the original one. Guess what? They still show up. Haunted by the bad photos which won't go away! Help - What am I doing wrong?

    Hi and welcome:

    For starters: have you tried to reboot the computer?

    Just a thought,

    Yes have rebooted several times after trying various fixes. Each time the photos reappear.

    Maybe give it some time to refresh after opening the Photos app (look for the spinning arrows next to the refresh button). Alternatively, if the arrows aren't spinning, what happens if you press the 'Refresh' button and wait for the arrows to stop spinning.

    Refresh doesn't help. I am in Windows Explorer and delete the pictures. In that view they are gone. But if I double click any picture - it launches the Photo App to display and when clicking the small arrow on the side to advance to the next picture - the deleted ones show up even though the Windows Explorer folder doesn't show them anymore.
