    Hello Pendlebury,

    Are you able to select them, right click on them, click on Move, then go to and right click on where you want to move them to, and click on Paste?

    If not, then what happens?

    Hope this helps,
    Shaw

    Tried copy and paste. Drag n drop. When I click on pictures folder in libraries it says

    "Pictures.library-ms" is no longer working.

    This library can be safely deleted from computer. Folders that have been included will not be affected.


    I have right clicked my photos folder and "Include in library". That has them in libraries now.

    I mainly want to share them with the photos metro app?

    For that error, see if deleting the Pictures library first, then restore default libraries may help.

    Yeah, including the folder into your say Pictures library would be the easiest way if your Pictures library is working.
