    Live photo tile


    So I understand that the photo app gets my photos from my picture library and then just randomly scrolls through them, however there is a specific folder of photo that I don't want to be shown. Is there a way to make it so it doesn't show that folder when flicking through the various photo I have or do I have to move the folder to another location?

    Take it out of My Pictures (e.g., just put it in your C: User folder--top level--like My Pictures) and give it a non-picture related name (not sure if that's necessary). I have some snips that I don't want to see on my start screen, and that's what I do--use a folder named Snips.
