Windows 10: Is it possible to save the Album data from the photo Viewer?

    Is it possible to save the Album data from the photo Viewer?

    I have in the Photo's program, 1000's of pictures, and all put manually in Albums and gave them a proper name.
    Is there a way to export that data, in case I need to re-format my PC and have to do everything all over again?
    Since it's a pain in the butt, and overtime, I have no clue where things belong too.

    I'm guessing, it's keeping it somewhere, since I knows when I create Albums and link photo's to that album.
    Except I can't seem to find it.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you

    Hi, if you read thru the various responses here, you may find a couple of ideas.

    Thanks, I had seen that one, but couldn't imagine that it was going to be that hard.
    Windows has to keep track of it somewhere ? and then be able to save that Data. either a file or registry settings.

    You are talking about universal apps. They don't follow the same pattern as downloaded exe's and don't use the registry or dlls.
