stripping photo images from folders in My Pictures


useless at IT

Likes # 0

I have thousands of images, non catalogued because I find it easier to simply sort through them visually. However, if they are in one of my hundreds of folders, I have to open each folder in turn to look at those images, then close it, quite a nuisance.

Is there an easy way of removing the folder enclosures so I can easily see all my images, other than cutting and painting each one?

I am happy to dispense with the folders altogether.

Open your Pictures main folder then open one of the inner folders. Next open your main pic folder again, reducing size of each folder so they will fit alongside each other on your screen.

Next in inner folder go to Edit then Select All, then right-click on any one of the highlighted pics and drag the whole lot over to your open Main Pics folder, job done! Or it should be.

PS - then do the same with each of your other Inner folders.

PPS - forgot to mention, you can then delete the empty folders.
