Question

Issue: How to fix photos downloading singly instead of in dated folder on Windows 10?

Hello. I cannot find downloaded files in the dated folder as it was common before. I downloaded images and wanted to see all of them in the folder with the date that they were created, but I only find those individual images. It was the automatic process before. I haven't changed any settings. Do you know what happened?

Solved Answer

This photos downloading singly instead of in dated folder issue on Windows 10[1] is the problem that users complain about not having found any fixes for. It is because this is not the error message caused by some faulty update or malware[2] infection, but the result of a change in the operating system functions.

The issue is occurring on Windows 10 because the rest update took away the function when the photos uploaded to the machine got to the folder. Now pieces go separately on the system, and files need to be found one by one once added.
