    Folders

    I was organizing my pictures into there own folders. I accidently moved a
    folder into another folder. How do I remove the folder from the folder I
    placed it in without deleting the folder and its content?

    Hi SondraJ,

    You can just drag (Click and hold on folder) the folder out of the other folder and drop it where you wanted it to be instead.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    When you select a folder, all of the folders inside that folder will be
    displayed on the right side of the window. Just drag the folder you want to
    move from there.

    If you just did it, you can right-click in Explorer, and select "Undo Move"
