How to find my photos after importing

by tdgreen14 / February 3, 2016 5:06 PM PST

When I import my photos from my IPhone to my Windows 10, it imports them to c:/users/myusername/pictures. I cannot figure out how to find this folder. I have spent about 45 minutes looking and am very frustrated since I know this will be something simple. Can someone tell me the simple steps to find them?

For Windows 10

In order to find that folder, first click on the "flag" in the lower left corner. It used to be called the "start button" but I do not know its real name in Windows 10. Then open "file explorer". In the column on the left side of that popup window, under the "This PC" heading. (Being an "OldTimer", I keep that folder on the desktop but it is not displayed there on the default settings anymore.) Click on local disk "C". That will open another window. In that list of files will be the "Users" folder. Open that and then the myusername folder. Hopefully the pictures folder will have photos.

set to show folders on left if not there already. Look for MyPictures in same place as My Documents or Documents. Should be there.

I figured it out

I know what happened. It organized my photos by date. I was looking for a 2-2016 folder but since none of the pictures were taken this month it was not there. I thought all the other folders were old folders that had been previously created. Thanks for the help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
