Default Sorting and organizing pictures in Windows 10

We just returned from an Asian vacation with many many pictures downloaded from an Android phone. It is so frustrating not to be able to manually organize and move them. I googled the problem and it was unclear if people have been successful trying to do this. Is there any solution? Help! I have a ton of pics.

I assume you have all your photos downloaded onto your desktop computer. I'm not sure how much organization or fixing of photos you want to do, but here are some tools for doing organizing.

Google photos, which you can use for free, lets you organize pictures manually. It also tags your photo according to content so you can find all the photo's with a dog in it or a person. It also can also fix up your photos. You can also find pictures by location. Plus you can make photo albums.

Google Photos - All your photos organized and easy to find

Professional photographers often use Adobe's Lightroom, which not only lets you organize photos but fix them up too. It's pricy but has many tools for repairing pictures.

Here is a listing of photo organizing software. Take this with a grain of salt though, as you should most magazine reviews.

You can always go to youtube.com and find many videos that will walk you through the filing process. Plus you can pause it as well as go back to check something you didn't understand the first time. This can be done with all subjects computer or otherwise how to instructions. Just type in the search the How To you want to learn about.

Thanks for the Great reminder that YouTube is an excellent learning tool. I use it for most anything I need to know. I don't think there is anything not on YouTube!

I have placed the photos in sub folders manually with no trouble at all, at least count 40 or more sub folders.

Thank you all for the responses. I did create subfolders. What I hoped to do was drag and drop to rearrange the pics. The workaround that I did was to renumber the pictures in picture tools so that I got them in the sequence I wanted. Seemed laborious.

You definitely didn't have to do that, sorry I just noticed this thread. There's left clicks, right clicks, and "linger-clicks" (my term). Basically you click in the upper left corner of a picture and hold the click for just brief extra lingering moment. That puts a checkmark on a little box. You can then click in the corner of all the other ones you want clustered with the first.

You then drag the entire group, as a singular entity, to the group sub-folder.

And then you do it with the next group, and the next, etc. If you have 1000 photos and you know in advance where each one will go, it would take perhaps 45 minutes total.

I too created lots (and LOTS) of sub-folders, then labeled each sub-folder by year (using numbers so that they're in order)...then added a general description.

To move individual photo's, you can left click on the particular photo and then use either Shift/Ctrl (I can't remember which) to select other specific photo's, then right clip COPY (don't use 'CUT' or you might lose it), or just drag any of the selected photo's...to the sub-folder you want them in.

For me, this method/procedure, makes/made it much easier...to now go find a particular photo.

I tried the two previous suggestions but it appears the folder "Picture Tools" will not allow me to click on the picture and get a check. Will keep working on it.
