I discovered that Microsoft Windows 10 automatically makes albums of all my pictures. I removed the tile but I need to know if the pictures are actually duplicated on my computer. If so it is taking up much space since I found albums dating back years. I cannot always find the album page but when I do I try to delete pictures.
Are these photos synced with Microsoft cloud or do they reside on my computer and is there a short way to find them?

I found 1,522 pictures on MS OneDrive. Not sure how they got there tho' BUT there is another set of albums.
I can go through programs and open Photo's. and they go back to 1980. Are these duplicates? Or is it just a set of disk addresses it displays?

Provide the FULL path to these Hidden albums?
NOT the ones on the MS One Drive

And what program is needed to view them?

I have no clue what program is being used. I presume it is a Microsoft ingenuity. It is probably not such an issue. I just am shocked when I come upon it and I don't know how I got there.
