Photos App is Microsoft’s default photo sharing application for Windows 10. The app has replaced the very old and popular Windows Photo viewer application. Photos App not only enables you to view photos and pictures, but also lets you organize, edit and share all your digital memories together. Since the app is tightly integrated with OneDrive cloud platform, it thus, brings all your photos and videos together from all your devices, accounts. Moreover, the app, by defaults, edits and enhances the images based on certain algorithm to make them look great. The Photos app also customizes the photos and creates beautiful personalized albums for you.

As mentioned earlier, Photos App of Windows 10 is greatly integrated to Onedrive. So, when you open the application, the Collection tabs open and displays the photos synced with OneDrive across all your devices. Now, the default setting only displays Photos synced with One Drive from My Pictures folder on your computer. If you have your OneDrive account synced with all other folders, you may not find them in the Collection View with the default setting. Hence, you have to change the location from My Pictures to All Folders. The steps are very simple and I will show you how doing it.
