    Transferring "Photos" to thumb drive


    I have several albums created in Photos. I have deleted these pictures from my camera and from my desktop. Is there a way to transfer the pictures to a thumb drive for transfer to another computer?

    Thanks, but it doesn't apply here. The photos are on the Start Page, not the desktop.

    Are they ON the START PAGE or are they just links to the images ?

    If they are just links see the picture--

    Hi there.

    as the previous poster says -- OPEN FILE LOCATION -- now simply RIGHT MOUSE CLICK and choose copy. Paste to your thumb drive with File explorer (Windows explorer).

    Cheers

    A note.

    If you just Pinned them to the Start page & then deleted the original files, they are gone.

    Hope you haven't emptied the recycle bin...
