Hello

Nalosin :

and welcome to JustAnswer.com

Nalosin :

If you wish to transfer picture from SkyDrive to your computer

Nalosin :

you have to open the SkyDrive folder, then check-mark all pictures you want to transfer

Nalosin :

then right-click on them and select Download

Nalosin :

they will be downloaded to your computer

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

You cannot checkmark pics in skydrive. Also, I want them to download to my picture files in the folders they are in.

Nalosin :

Do you use Internet Explorer to access SkyDrive?

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

No. Do not know how. I access my SkyDrive through my e-mail. A friend set it up.

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

I need specific steps. Obviously, I am not much on computers.

Nalosin :

Ok. If you open Internet Explorer and type this webpage address in address bar:

Nalosin :

https://skydrive.live.com

Nalosin :

then login with your hotmail account

Nalosin :

you will see all your folders there

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

Folders are all empty.

Nalosin :

then where are all of your pictures?

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

I can access them through the album a friend set up in my e-mail. They are on skydrive.

Nalosin :

Can you click on Photos to the left of SkyDrive page

Nalosin :

and check if your photos are there

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

No. They are not.

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

They are all there in my e-mail when I go into my skydrive account.

Nalosin :

Can you please explain the procedure from start how are you accessing the photos?

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

Click on my e-mail with albums. Enter PW on next screen. Select which set of files. Files are there.

Nalosin :

Do you open specific email?

Nalosin :

Is there a link where you click?

Nalosin :

Can you copy link from address bar where your photos are and paste it here?

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

yes. Then I select the files (There are two sets). It goes there and I type in PW

Nalosin :

Ok. Please copy link from address bar and paste it here

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

I will try. It is [email protected]

Nalosin :

I need the link from your address bar

I asked previously if you are using Internet Explorer?

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

I have internet explorer.

OK. Are you using Internet Explorer to open your SkyDrive pictures?

Nalosin :

Do you have menu at the top of SkyDrive page

Nalosin :

Do you have page like this?

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

Yes, but those files show empty.

Nalosin :

I don't understand, how do you open your photos if

Nalosin :

you have nothing there, no files?

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

It is on a different page. One page has pictures of files containing numerous photos. The side headings are the same.

Nalosin :

but you send me the link for this exact page

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

If you click on file pic, it opens with those particular photos.

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

I just tried to copy this page link again and it will not let me copy it.

Nalosin :

Ok. When you open the folder where

Nalosin :

pictures are, do you have checkmarks in front of them

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :

NO

Nalosin :

Ok. I will have to opt-out of your question and open it to other Experts

JACUSTOMER-71gedb8o- :
