    In that case, see if using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to use the image you want instead may help.

    Option one did the trick! Thank you very much Brink.
    I thought it required installation which I wanted to avoid, but it didn't.

    Thanks so much again.

    Brink, I'm trying to add media folders with my photo albums with this method (Step 5), but I cannot browse to anything. Selecting "This PC", presents no files or folders.

    Hello Dick,

    Odd. Did you move your user profile and libraries to another location? That could explain why they are not there.

    No, not that I'm aware of. This is a newer laptop about two months old, with the 8.1 update. My media folders are on an external hard drive. I don't think there are libraries.

    When you click on This PC at the top in your screenshot and click on This PC in the menu, do you get anything else to select then?

    Nope. There is nothing to select.

    Odd. Are you able to navigate to the "C:\Users\(user-name)" folder location in File Explorer?

    You might see if restarting the PC may sort it.

    Under network, any path I type in, I get a message saying there's a problem with the network path. I have this same problem whenever I try to sync my windows phone... nothing is available to select from "This PC", only "OneDrive" seems to ever be accessible.
