Troubleshooting photos in the Your Phone app

Applies to: Windows 10

Why can’t I view more than 25 photos?


To minimize network bandwidth and maximize performance, we show your 25 most recent photos and screenshots from your phone.

Also, we only get photos that are in the Camera Roll or Screenshots folders on your Android phone. If you moved or saved your photos to a different folder on your Android phone, they will not appear in the Your Phone app.

Can I delete my photos?


No. The Your Phone app only creates copies of your recent photos, that you see displayed in the app. These are stored as temporary files on your PC. Deleting the temporary file on your PC will not affect the original on your Android phone.
