    hi !
    the app defaults to C:\users\pictures, how can I set it to my D:\ drive where my photos are ?

    "Photo" app points by default to the "Picture" folder in the Users group, I didn't fin d a way to change this default path, I want it to point to the drive and folder where my photos are i.e. on drive D instead,

    Make Properties on "Pictures", choose "Location" tab and change the location of your pictures path.

    Pictures is just folder/library like Music or Videos, so all you need to do is right click the folder with photos u want to add to library, go to "include in library" option from context menu and choose add to Photos, voila.

    And if you want to relocate the location of the WHOLE library say Pictures, u go to c:\users\*your username*\ right click Pictures, -> Properties-> go to tab Location, change the location to what you want.


    edit: cuteee was faster :D
