If you do not use Camera Roll and Saved Pictures folders often in Windows 10 and you want to hide or delete them , this message may help. If the Recorded Images and Camera role still appears on the desktop, it is also a scenario in which you want to hide folders. On the other hand, if you find your image folder very overloaded, you can move these folders to another location . The camera application uses the Camera Roll folder to store the media while the Recorded Images folder is used by the camera application.

The procedure for moving the recorded images and camera roll to another location is similar to changing the default location of user folders via Folder Properties or Windows 10 Settings > Edit, where the new content is saved.

To change them via the folder properties, right-click the Camera Roll folder > select Properties > Location tab. You can find a path mentioned in a box. You must enter the new path to move the Camera Roll folder.

Click OK, etc. and finish.

You can also move the Saved Images folder.

Read: The Windows camera application cannot start.
