How to Move the Pictures Folder to Windows 10

Learn how to tell Windows 10 to store your Images on any part of the disc you want.


By default, Windows store your personal "Pictures" folder under the% UserProfile% folder of your account (for example: "C: \ Users \ Dimitris \ Pictures").

You can change this option and have your photos stored in a folder called "Pictures" but stored elsewhere on the hard disk or another disk, or even on another computer on the network.

Let's see how:

Step 1. Create a new folder named "Pictures" (in English and not in Greek) where you want (eg "D") to move your personal Pictures folder. That is, for our example, we just created the D: \ Pictures folder.

Step 2. Open File Explorer on your PC. Simply press Win + E at the same time, find the "Pictures" folder that is already stored and logically located under C: \ Users \ Your_Name. We found it for convenience under the "Quick access" team.

Step 3. After you find it, right-click on the "Pictures" folder and then click "Properties" which is logically at the bottom of the popup list.

Step 4. In the Properties window, click on the "Position" tab, and then click the "Move" button. (See screenshot below)

Step 5. Browse and select the "Pictures" folder at the location you want (eg: "D: \ Pictures") from step 1, and click "Select Folder"

Step 6. Click the OK button to confirm the change

Step 7. In the Windows prompt to want to move all files to the new location Click "Yes" to move all files from their old location to the new location. (although this is your personal choice)

Step 8. Your personal "Pictures" folder and all its contents should now have been moved to their new location (eg: "D: \ Pictures") and you will see this new location and "quick access" to file exploration as folder named "Pictures"
