Q: can not delete pics in "my pictures"

Using WindowsXP - trying to delete photos in my pictures. Whenever I hit "delete" for the selected pictures, another copy of those pics is made and placed in the my pictures file. What causes this? How can I prevent this from happening?

Preferred Solution: can not delete pics in "my pictures"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: can not delete pics in "my pictures"

Try this solution below that I found elsewhere ....

...highlighted the file to be deleted.. For example, when you quickly highlight multiple files to delete, if you accidentally "drag" the mouse a little too much, it creates a copy of every file that was previously highlighted and saves it to the same folder.

First, try deleting a single file by RIGHT clicking on the file, choose "Delete".. If no extra copy is made of that file, then nothing is wrong except your technique of highlighting files.

There are other ways to highlight multiple files.. For example, if you got a bunch of files all in order, click on the first file to highlight it, then hold down the "Shift" key, then click once on the last file in the list.. All files in between will be highlighted. You can then click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Delete" from the menu items.

Or, if you want to remove a large number of files from a folder, open the folder, click on "Edit" in the upper left, select "Select All".. All of the files will be highlighted in the folder, ready for deletion.. To eliminate those files you still want to keep, hold down the "Ctrl" key, then click once on each file you want to save in the folder.. When you're ready to delete all the files that remain highlighted, click on "File", select "Delete".

Is there any way to delete these system folders.

I don't use them, and I never will. If I delete them though, they are simply re-created.

Thanks

Why do you feel the need to delete them? Just ignore them as deleting system folders can be problematic although it seems win 10 has a way of defeating the deleters!

I am trying to clean some space on my hard drive. I ran a search for all photos on my drive. The search shows two of everything in My Pictures. When I open the folder there is only one of everything there. If I change the name of one of the two photos while in the search feature, both photos change. Is my computer automatically saving a copy of the pictures and can I turn this off? I checked "properties" and the location of the photos are ecatly the same for both. What gives?

The frustration has been for more than 2 years now. I tried to move the photo folders & files from "My Pictures" to "Pictures" but Window's geniouses did not give us that option. I do not need to click to "My Pictures" since they are ALL MY pictures. So are we stuck with this decision or is there a way which I can get rid of 1 of the folders? Same with "Documents" & "Videos".

Try the reverse. Move the files from Pictures into My pictures, and if you can, then delete the Pictures folder. Then rename the My Pictures folder to Pictures.

hi,

OK, this is a weird one.

I wanted to move the "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders to another HDD. I moved the "My Documents" Folder to this HDD without a problem but the others I accidentally set the whole HDD as the folder (if that makes sense). So now the music, videos and pictures folders are set to this HDD and dont have an actual folder to change the properties of. Therein lies my dilema.

If anyone can offer any advice on this curly issue it would be greatly appreciated.

Howdy everybody! I have a new XPS 8910 with Windows 10.  When I hit the Windows & Print Screen keys, it is supposed to generate a picture of my Desktop into a Folder, within Pictures, labelled “Screenshots.” But there is no such "ScreenShots" folder there! What should I do? If I simply create a new folder, and label it “Screenshots,” will do that do the trick? Or is there a more complicated fix? Your help would be appreciated. Thanks!

A:No "ScreenShots" Folder in Pictures To Hold " Print Screen" Images!

Is it just saving the screenshots somewhere else or is it just not taking screenshots at all? Don't know about your specific system, but on my Win 10 lappy, the screen blinks (dims) when the screenshot is taken.  
Did you look in all the subfolders in Pictures to see if Screenshots folder is buried in one of them?
Win 10 also has a Snipping Tool which will allow you to put a box around the part of the screen you want to capture and then you can save it wherever you want. Maybe that's easier, and you can pin the Snipping Tool to the Start menu so it's easy to find.

I have a problem with one of my vista accounts' picture folder. When saving to "my pictures", I went back to my "user" folder to find the pictures folder... but the picture I saved was actually saved to what appears to be a 'false' recycle bin; Only, this 'recycle bin' does not behave like the actual recycle bin, since I can browse and even open photos from within it, and it also does not have the "restore" option... When I try to change the name of the "recycle bin" folder to "pictures" (from the properties window) it says that there is already a folder with the name 'pictures', but then refers to the same 'recycle bin' with my photos. How could this have happened? How do we get the folder to return to the normal "pictures" appearance? It's as if part of the software thinks that it's the pictures folder, and part thinks it's (somehow??) the recycle bin (based on its appearance). Thank you.

A:Pictures folder appears to be "recycle bin" but still behaves like "pictures" folder.

Hello Jsprong, and welcome to Vista Forums.

This should be able to help restore this folder for you.
Backup anything that you do not want to lose in these two folders to another location.Use OPTION THREE in this tutorial to make sure that the "Pictures" folder is set to it's default location of "C:\Users\(user-name)\Pictures".Delete both folders.Restart the computer to apply. It may take a couple of restarts before the Pictures folder is back in it's default location.If for some reason the icon is not correct for it, then you can use this tutorial to fix it.Hope this helps,

Tried installing Windows Defender, and it couldn't find her "My Pictures" folder so it didn't install. So I looked under her My Documents folder. It's missing the My Pictures and My Music folders. Plus, the other folders that are there, such as My Videos, etc., their icons are not special, they look like ordinary folders.

Her computer's "Shared Documents" section looks fine, with all the usual folders with special icons, etc.

Dear Forum,

I downloaded a number of images in the Pictures section of File Explorer, unaware they were simultaneously being downloaded to the Photos section as well. I chose delete all the pictures in the Picture section, but the same picture remain in the Photo section of the Start menu. So, I am trying to delete them all there as well.

Two questions:

1.) How do I ensure that, in the future, things I choose to download-like these images-don't wind up in my desktop in more than one place at a time?

2.) When I went to the Photos section, I was able to select individual images and delete them, but I can't seem to find a "Select All" option in the Photos app so I can get rid of all of them at once. Too many to do, individually. On the left side I see option in a column like, Unpin from Start, Resize >, Turn Live Tiles On, and Pin to Task Bar. On the right side across the bar, are icons for: Refresh, Select, and See More. I've tried them all, but I can't find anything like a "Select All" option. When I hit the Select button, little squares appear on the upper right hand corner of each photograph, but I still need to insert a check for each image, individually. Can't seem to check them all at once. So, what do I do here, also?

Here's a possible fix, but it entails tweaking the registry. http://www.graphixanstuff.com/Forum/index.php?showtopic=2572

My understanding is that the folders keep getting recreated (after deletion) by _other_ software when it's installed; I assume something like Photoshop would have language referencing the My Pictures folder, for example.

In Oulook Express (but I'm assuiming this is an issue in other email clients) my question is, what exactly happens when I "delete" a message from my inbox, in the TWO different cases depending on the setting for "leave a copy on the server"?
I want to have this setting checked on all my computers, and I will be responsible for deleting (on the SERVER, NOT just in my local copy on one computer) unwanted messages. My friend claims that a "delete" of a msg in my inbox only removes the local copy (when the "leave a copy" is checked). But I want to be able to delete on the SERVER, from any of my computers, so that the msg doesn't "come back" on another computer (sort of like what web-based email does, only I want this behavior with SMTP/POP). He says that to do this, I must have the "leave a copy" unchecked on at least one computer (of course in that case, getting the messages amounts to a server delete without any other specific "delete" action by me). But that means that I can't later get ANY of the msgs that were pulled by another of my computers, because all those msgs (not just the ones I want to delete) were deleted on the server. I don't mind having my various computers slightly out of sync (I can always sync them if needed) but I would like messages I DON'T delete to stay on the server. If I keep them ONLY in my local inbox, or copy to another local folder, I won't be able t... Read more

A:OE: what does "delete" do, depending on "leave a copy on the server"?

OK. Essentially this is how it works with POP3 mail that you are using. When mail is sent to your email address it gets stored in your ISP's mail server. You then connect to that server and download the mail off of the server onto your machine. Once the mail is on your machine, it is no longer left on the ISP's mail server.

That is the default behaviour but can be changed. If you go into your Account/Advanced tab and specify to leave the mail on the server, when you download the mail to your local machine, a copy will still be left on your server.

In both situations if you delete a message from your inbox, it will have no affect whatsoever on the mail on the server and will be deleted.

Now if you want to make it so that you can manage your mail and have the same mail on all computers, specify on each computer that the mail should be left on the server. Then if your ISP has a webmail interface, which almost all do, use that interface to clean up the already received email.

If there is no web interface, then your friend is right and you will need one machine to remove the mail from the server.

My primary PC has been my primary storage device for years. I have nearly 500 Gigs worth of music, photos and documents that I want to move out to a central storage device, so I bought a 2TB NAS.

My wife has a laptop, smart phone and tablet. The phone and tablet are used to take large amounts of pictures with, and she wants to be able to see all of these pictures, no matter what device she is using. Yes she drives me crazy with this, but after nearly 30 years of marriage, I guess I've learn how to deal with it.

So, my solution is to put up a NAS device, put all of the photos out there, then she can access them from anywhere with any device she has.

For her laptop, what I want to do is to have her "My Pictures" be the public share on the NAS device. I know this can be done, because this is how my company has the employee "My Documents" setup.

This could be one for the books,

Last night when I went to look at the Pictures folder in My Documents there was a folder of pictures and six other pictures in my folder that no one, not me, nor anyone else downloaded to the computer. All of them are JPG files and we have friends who have e-mailed pictures to us.

However, in my fifteen years of computer experience I know that I would personally have to download those photos to mu computer in order for them to be viewed. A family member has posted unrelated pictures on E-bay. We are trying to think and there were no e-mails opened, no photos looked at, nothing between the time that this happened, (Last Night.) Because a family friend who is into photography sent nature pictures through E-Mail, I just assumed it was from him and said, "Oh, I put those pictures that you downloaded last night in a folder, and the other computer user in my family said, "What pictures?"

I don't use Photo Sharing of any kind, My Avast Anti-Virus log shows now threats. All of the pictures are OLD. BUT here is the interesting thing, of the photo specs of them so far that I can see, they were taken by a person who has the SAME type of camera that we use on this computer. BUT we just got the camera last year and no one else has used it. The dates on those pictures go back from 2000-2003.

There is no evidence of anyone using any photo sharing application software. The computer runs as well as as ever. Any ideas?

Hey folks,

Got a problem here that I believe I have experienced in Vista before but I forgot how I eventually solved the problem but I did solve it before.

It's been so long since it's happened though that I would probably have trouble digging up the old thread that I posted about it.

Anyway, let me explain.

I cannot right-click on some pictures on the internet and then save them as I am normally able to do.

For example, I go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sephiroth_(Final_Fantasy)

When I get to this page, I will attempt to right-click on the picture of the Sephiroth character at the top right of the page and save the image to one of my folders.

Normally when I do this it works perfectly, no problems whatsoever. However, as it is right now, when I right-click the picture and try to save it to a folder a window pops up that says "Access Denied".

And to show you that the problem is not solely isolated to this single wikipedia page, I have tried other pages, for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Street_Fighter_4

I tried to right-click and save the picture in the top right of this page as well, once again. And once again, same problem. "Access Denied" window pops up and I can't save the pics to my folder.

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions for this problem or has experienced this same problem before I would love your input and your time and help.

By the way, I am using Vista Ultimate 64-bit edition.

Thanks in advance folks!... Read more

But it says its was full, well I try to right click on it and delete the file, but it didn't let me a error message appeared saying:

"Cannot delete the Files on this CD are read only. You can still copy new files to this writable CD, wich will replace files already on the disc "

Well so .... I try to do that "again" But NO GO !!!
I tried and it display a message saying that the discs is full again .

The capacity of the rewritable disc is of 650 MB, the new file to add it's about 200 MB and the existent file on disc is just 2.69 !!! so...? is not full at the capacity of the disc.
It says to insert a writable discs as well !!

Ok ...well ...so I tried to delete the file with a 3rth party app.

So I try to use NERO to delete the rewritable disc....
I place the disc.... select delete a cd/dvd rw disc.... then option of quick delete or full delete appears.... but, NERO doesn't even recognize it as a rewritable disc !!!
What do I'm missing here ?
Is there an application that can DELETE the data "files and folders" from a Rewritable disc?

same thing with Ashampoo ... cant delete the rewritable disc

Okay, so I took about 900 pictures off my Sony DSLR camera, and copied and pasted them from the camera's folder, to a new folder on an external hard drive (Which is what I always do), and now the pictures in the new folder are all messed up! Like the first 50, and the last 50 are perfectly normal while the rest of the 800 in the middle say "No preview available" when tried to be opened with Windows picture and fax viewer. When tried to be opened with PictureViewer, it says "Could not display "DSC08868.JPG" because a suitable graphics importer could not be found". When tried to be opened with paint it says, "Paint cannot read this file. This is not a valid bitmap file, or it's format is not currently supported". These files cannot be uploaded on to Photobucket either. All the files are the same size as they were orignally though (Ex. 3 MB).

Also, I have already deleted the pics off the camera (Im still yelling at myself for it...) so I can't just re-upload. However, on recommendation, I installed PC Inspector File Recovery program, and it was able to start re-downloading the deleted pictures from my camera! But the new files were just like the original, and there was "No preview available".

Another strange thing, one of the pictures in the middle, is half gray, with only part of the picture displayed...Like what happens when you mess up with film, here is a link to it: http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s44/Pho... Read more

hiya there

yeah seem to have misplaced my music files...the folders are still there physically but on opening the tracks they come up on the playlist media player but have a blatant red cross beside them., and or "file does not exist"

found a stack of my music files on a software prog that ive recently installed - WinUtilites. am pretty sure ive used one of this prog's tools and have tempoararily moved them...compressed, archived them or something as files come up as single tracks, all right in order, but theres 1,000's of them.

as ive a rather large music library that i dont want to lose, as theres lots of music which i havent burnt coz its not my thing...but i love being able to swap tunes so although i have cd copies of most of the music i listen too. would really like to retieve all the folders that i have ripped

have had to restore system b4 so thats an obvious choice, so if i have to do this is there a quick way of simply restoring the folders...without my having to do each folder on an individual basis. as this would take a mammoth session, but will do it if theres no other way.

any help, guidance or remarks concerning this dilema would be gratefully recieved and i promise not to shoot the messenger ... even if its news i dont wanna hear/read

many thanx pple - CHIN CHIN

I have windows XP pro, and for some reason some pictures that i have downloaded end up on my wallpaper or Backgrounds list, you know when you right click on the mouse and hit properties, and you can change your desktop background? What do i need to do to stop this from happening? and how do i get rid of the pics that now appear in my backgrounds list? I have kids that i do not want to view certain material on my computer, so these pics i have downloaded into a hidden file that only my wife and i have access to.

I can attach but that doesn't always fit my needs. I don't know when this problem started...when I got my Vista or later. I used Outlook 2003 when I had my XP with no problems. I don't know if this is a Vista problem or an Outlook 2003 problem.

I am trying to do some overclocking on my new setup, i have a MSI KT6V KT600 FSB400 board, with sempron 2800+ cpu but it has a fsb333, via chipset, 128 mb g-force card, 768mb DDR400 pc3200. I have looked through the threads for sempron bios help and even the madshrimp article to overclock AMD's and my bios is different and I am not sure where to look for info on my specific bios setup, its probably very similar to the amd bios pics in madshrimps article but it is just different enough that it throughs me off can anyone help me out?? Some links to anything helpful would be great or threads with info that i might have overlooked, Pm me or post here or if someone would be real cool and let me call them on the phone and help walk me through a few settings shoot me a pm. My bios has this frequency/Voltage control on the right side when clicked it takes me to this other screen with dynamic overclocking feature you can kinda see in the pics, you can set the FSB, cpu ratio, cpu vcore, dynamic overclocking and agp voltage and ddr voltage, the dynamic overclocking is what i am a little confused on you can set it up 1%, 3%, 5%, 10%, also i dont see anything anywhere about any multiplyer?? Can anyone take a little time and help me out?? Thanks alot!!!
 

A:Bios is different, help with "Dynamic Overclocking" PICS!!

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

The correct FSB for you cpu is 166mhz(333mhz effective) the correct multiplier is X12 so 166mhz X 12 = 1992 mhz.

Go Here and check out your cpu specs.

I want to use Find and Replace to delete all the links in a document. All the links are as text (e.g. http://...). I don't mean that the word Yahoo is a link to http://www.yahoo.com.

I want to use wild cards to select the Whole link.
I thought find http://* would select it all, but it only selects the http:// part of the whole link.
I have checked the Use Wildcards checkbox.

How do I select the whole link so that I can replace it with a blank space?

I'm using Word 2003.
 

A:Delete all links, delete all that begin w/ http: | "Find and Replace" Help

Try using something like this in your search field for Replace:
http:?*?*****************************
Edit:Oh, you are in Word - what I suggested works in Excel.
In Word, you will have to do something like this:
(http:????????????????) - but that will only find names that are 21 characters long that start with "http:". If you have one that is 20 characters long, you will need to remove one question mark, then another, then another....
e.g., to find http://www.google.com you need "http:" followed by 16 "?" but to find http://www.yahoo.com you need "http:" followed by 15 "?".
It might be easier to export your data to Excel (if it is in a table, at least) and do the work there.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

I have tried every google search string that I can think of, and found... Read more

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!
