Picture Library Problem

I somehow managed to put a wrong date on two folders in my picture lidrary. I would like to remove the photos in the two folders into a folder of the right date and delete the empty folder, or can someone tell me how to change the wrong date on the two folders.
I have included an attachment of the two wronge dated folders.

try right clicking the pics in the library.
in the context menu select open folder location, in the window that opens the folder will be there and then you should be able to change the date from there ,this will then show up in the library

I think that is "arrange by Month". If that is the case you will need to change the date taken tag for each image.

You are welcome DG8. It would be useful if you told us what the solution was in case anyone else has it.

Sorry Kado897 - I thought I had but clearly not, so I will attempt to try and explain what I did.

I opened each file independently, selected all photos by right clicking and holding down the shift key, Clicked on delete, then opened the correct folder I wanted the photos in and pasted.

When I went back to folders to do the same to the other folder - the first folder which I had just done was now no longer visible and all the photos from it were saved in correct folder. I hope this makes sense, but it worked for me.
Sorry for my stupid mistake and thanks again.
