Cannot move image folders to Windows Pictures folder

Post by Old_Timer »

I'm running WIndows 11 and I have all of my images in folders under Documents > Photos. I want to move them to the Windows Pictures folder using PS so that the database will stay in synch and I don't have to delete,then re-import folders in the new location. The documentation suggests using Cut/Paste, however the Pictures folder is not shown in the file hierarchy as a paste destination. The tree only displays the folders that lead to the Photos folder. So the folders tree shows:
C:
> Users
--> [Name]
----> Documents
------> Photos

Pictures, as well as many other folders/system folders reside under [Name] but are not shown. I've checked the documentation and looked for a setting to display the entire Windows folder hierarchy but no luck. If anyone has any ideas on how to do this move please let me know.

What I have done in a similar situation is to place one photo in the folder I want to appear in Photo Supreme. I import the photo. The photo and folder appear in Photo Supreme. Then I drag and drop photos, within Photo Supreme, into the folder.
Photo Supreme 6.7.2.4201 (64 bits) (Windows)

Thanks sanphotgn. Once a new destination folder has a single, imported image I've been able to cut/paste the rest.
