Windows 7: Where are my photos?

10 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7
Where are my photos?

Windows explorer shows the path to my photos in full as:
c:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Public Pictures see this image. This is a lie.

When I right click and choose 'open this location' the message unable to open location is displayed as shown here.

How can I stop the lies and make Windows tell me truthfully where my images are stored?

Hello Steve,

If you are searching using the Index, then it may not have fully updated itself yet for changes made to these images locations. Rebuild the index to see if the search results may be accurate when it is finished.

If not, then you might try the settings in the tutorial below to see if it will give you accurate search results afterwards.

Hope this helps,

When you dl'ld the pic's where did you dl them too, the default is Librarys/Pictures/My Pictures , then C:/users/your name/My picturers and also Public/My picturers, you should be able to double click any picturer and it come up in Windows Picturer Viewer
