Is Copilot the best AI companion out there? Help us find out by answering a couple of quick questions!

I suspect most of us are not heavy users the native Windows 10 Photos app, but if you sync your photo roll to OneDrive you may be surprised by having a pop-up in your Windows 10 Action Centre every once in a while announcing that the Photos app has created a new album, which often consists of rather randomly collected photos set to music. The automatically created albums then tend to clutter up the top of the Photos app user interface, making it difficult to view your photos.

The good news is that Microsoft appears to be testing a switch which allows users to disable the automatic creation of albums, according to WBI.

Microsoft has pushed out a new built of the Microsoft Photo for Windows 10 Insiders on the Fast and Skip Ahead rings, taking it to version 2019.19011.15410.0.

The changelog reads:

  • Automatic Album Creation – An option to disable the automatic creation of photo albums from the collection was introduced in the Photos app settings.
  • Bug fixes and various improvements.

Are any of our readers fans of the Photos Automatic Album feature, or do you welcome the arrival of the ability to disable it? Let us know below.
