    How to Enable or Disable Indexing Network Locations in Photos app in Windows 10


    The Photos app included in Windows 10 is a universal app that allows you to view and edit your photos and videos, make films and create albums. You can use video remix to create a video instantly from the photos and videos that 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.

    Starting with Photos app version 2020.20070.3003.0, a new indexing setting has been added which allows you to enable or disable indexing parts of your library stored on network locations.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable indexing your collection library stored on network locations in the Microsoft Photos app for your account in Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1 Open the Photos app.

    2 Click/tap on the See more (3 dots) button at the top right corner, and click/tap on Settings. (see screenshot below)
