Hello,
I have all my photographs stored in a folder called John's Pictures. This
is a separate folder within My Pictures. My Documents and therefore My
Pictures are stored on my D Drive rather than the C Drive.
I would like to have all my photographs, which are grouped in separate sub
folders, available in My Pictures and not in the separate John's Pictures
folder. I don't know haow to change this without deleting the whole lot!
I'd be very grateful if someone can help.
Thanks,
John

What........what are you trying to do? Your "C" drive is your default drive.
You can create whatever you want on either your C or D drive, so what is
the problem? Why would you need to "delete the whole lot"? You can
copy and paste can't you?

No, that is not the problem. Perhaps I didn't explain it very well. I want to
delete the folder but not the sub folders within it. The whole folder
contains 55GB of photographs. There seems to be no way of deleting the main
folder without deleting its contents, i.e the sub folders.
Perhaps the answer is to copy and paste the contents to My Pictures and then
delete the main folder. I'll let you know if that works.

In Windows Explorer, just move the sub-directory wherever you want it to be.

Dear Jim,
Thank you very much. I was able manually to move each sub folder to My
Pictures and then delete the main folder. I shall remember that for the
future. Thanks for your help.
