A workaround for you

From what I?ve seen, you can?t remove the base folders (like the generic Videos, Pictures, etc.) from the Windows Live Photo Gallery list. What I?d suggest you do is moving your videos that you don?t wish to have pulled in into a new folder.

If that folder (which needs to be outside the Videos folder) is getting pulled in, right-click on the folder and select Remove from the gallery.

Sorry there isn?t an easy fix here.

Hope this helps.

Hi Ron,

Thanks for your answer. Your suggestion is what I tried before. But that means I have to re-organize the library in windows media center, movie maker, and many applications, which related to "My Videos" folder. The huge amount of video clips is not easy to move. This is why I looking for a way, how can I keep the videos in My Videos folder but without Live gallery disturb.

I'll keep looking, but everything I'm finding right now points to you not being able to do so, just based on how the programs are set up.

If I find something I'll post it here.
