    How to Add and Remove Folders in Photos app in Windows 10


    The Photos app is included in Windows 10 by default. You can use the Photos app to view and edit your photos and videos, make movies, and create albums. You can use video remix to instantly create a video from photos and videos you select. Use the video editor for fine-tuned adjustments — change filters, text, camera motion, music, and more. You can even add 3D effects like butterflies, lasers, or explosions that magically appear in your video.

    The Photos app in Windows 10 gathers photos from your PC, phone, and other devices, and puts them in one collection place, where you can more easily find what you’re looking for.

    The Photos app displays your collection of images from folders you add located on your PC, an external drive, or a network drive connected to your PC. Subfolders of the folders you add will be included, too.

    The Photos app automatically displays the photos and videos in the Pictures folder on your PC and OneDrive by default.

    Hello Keith,

    Usually, you should see a Select Folder dialog after clicking on Add a folder in Photos settings.

    If the Select Folder dialog is not hiding behind another window or off-screen, you might see if resetting the Microsoft Photos app may help.
