    Photos in Windows 10

    by zlzpqx ·

    When I download in Windows 10 a picture from my Cloud storage, it appears on my PC screen with the title “Photos,” followed by the picture’s identification. (I am then able to photoshop the picture, and then copy/paste it in my Pictures folder in the PC.)

    What I am very curious about is whether the above “Photos” is a built-in Windows 10 facility. I have not seen in the Control Panel or Settings any mention of “Photos.”

      If I use my browser to download something, the result is a file in my Download folder. But I wouldn’t call that “appear on my screen with a title”.
      So please tell more about what you do and what you see.

        Thank you, Kees.

        First, I am very surprised that you promptly wrote your response either very late at night or very early in the morning, depending on your location. I have an idea that you reside on the east coast. If that idea of mine is correct, you had written your response around 4:30 am! (I live in Phoenix,AZ. I had posted my query around midnight.)

        Your writing “If I use my browser to download something, the result is a file in my Download folder” solved my puzzle. The same happens with me too, and I have known about it, but had sort of forgotten about it. Thus, if I download a picture from my Amazon Cloud storage, its file name appears in my Download folder. Then if I click on that file name, the picture appears on my screen with the title “Photos” and the file name next to it.

        What was happening was and happens is that when I download a picture from my Amazon Cloud storage, the “magical” Internet mechanics right away provides on my screen the picture under the title “Photos” with the file name next to it, without my having to open the Download folder and then clicking on the file name to obtain the picture on my screen.

        Thank you so much, Kees. Yourself and Bob Proffit provide an absolutely marvelous service to people posting their diverse queries.

          When I download a picture from my Amazon Cloud storage, its file name appears in a newly appearing Downloads panel in my browser, next to the Amazon Cloud panel. I then obtain the picture on my screen by clicking on the file name. So the process is essentially the same as my opening first Windows Explorer to access the file name in the Downloads folder there.

          Well, I’m not in the USA. I’m in the Netherlands, where it is 6 hours later than in New York, and 9 hours later than in San Francisco.

          Somewhere, in the options of a browser (details are different in different browsers) you can specify for a file type (extension) if a download should be stored in the download folder or opened in a program (or ask you each download apart).

          So it’s an option in the program you use to download. Apparently, you told that program to open a .jpg-file in the Photos app or whatever program is that says “Photos ” in the title.
          Your choice. You could have chosen any other program or chosen it should be stored in the downloads folder.

          Nothing mysterious. Call it “flexibility”.
