    When I import my photos from an SD card, it goes to the Photo Library on the Start Menu, is there a way I can insert the photos in a folder of my choice?

    There should be a menu allowing you to choose the destination folder. Are you using the manufacturer software or the windows software?

    These are my choices:

    Import Photos & Videos
    Photos

    View Pictures
    Photo Gallery

    Create Disc or Edit Image
    Media Suite 10

    Turn Photo into Masterpieces
    Photo Director2

    Create Disc or Edit Video
    Media Suite 10

    Play
    Windows Media Player

    Open Folder to View Files
    File Explorer

    Take no action

    When I select Import Photo & Videos, it doesn't ask where I want it to go, it just goes into the Photo Library in the Start Menu.

    I deleted my photos from the file in the start menu and now I'm left with a blank photo file with the title of the file and an "error" in the upper letf hand corner. How do I get rid of thjis file now that has no photos?

    What would be the proper way to delete a photo file from the Photo Library? I deleted the photos but the file with no photos in it is still there.

    Open Windows Explorer. Browse to the SD card and copy the photo's. Then browse to the destination where you want the photo's to be placed and paste them there.

    Easy as proverbial pie

    Nothing says you have to use that popup to open, view or move files...I just close that popup and did exactly what Der Snoober suggested, with any media device....eg cd/dvd, thumb drive or sd card. Always have in all windows versions.
