Help - folders were inadvertently copied to Win Photo Gallery
I'm brand new to Vista and accidentally automatically copied the folders to
the Photo Gallery. I can't delete them from there without deleting them from
the computer and I can't move them out of there.
I've so much that copied it's clogging it up. Please, can you tell me how
to get the folders - Music, Desktop, Favorites, in fact my entire My Document
folder from my old PC, out of there.

Obviously I am challenged with Vista!

TIA
Marri

Yes I have and that's not an option given.
FWIW, I'm using Vista Home Premium and I'm the Admin.

It only works for folders you added to the PhotoGallery.

Re: *Update* Help - folders were inadvertently copied to Win Photo Gallery
If you would like to clear Windows
Vista Photo Gallery...try the following...
============================
The following steps should clear the
Photo Gallery...then you can add any
folder you choose.

Open Photo Gallery and go to...

File / Add Folder to Gallery

In the Folder field...Type C:\

The drop window will open...

In the drop window...choose...
C:\Users / OK / OK

In the left pane of Photo Gallery under
"Folders"...right click..."Users"

From the menu...choose...
"Remove From The Gallery" / Yes.

That should do it.....

Now you can go to...File / Include a folder
in the gallery...and choose any folder you
prefer.

===

If the result is not what you hoped for...
Right click your Start button and choose...Explore...

Navigate to the following folder:

C:\Users\>UserName<\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Window s Photo Gallery
Delete everything in the folder...
Specifically...Pictures.pd4 and NavTree.State

The next time you open the Photo Gallery
it will be as it was the first time you opened it.

Good luck...
