How to Sign in and Sign out of Photos app with Microsoft Account in Windows 10

The Photos app is included in Windows 10 by default. You can use the Photos app to view and edit your photos and videos, make movies, and create albums. You can use video remix to instantly create a video from photos and videos you select. Use the video editor for fine-tuned adjustments — change filters, text, camera motion, music, and more. You can even add 3D effects like butterflies, lasers, or explosions that magically appear in your video.

The Photos app in Windows 10 gathers photos from your PC, phone, and other devices, and puts them in one collection place, where you can more easily find what you’re looking for.

The Photos app displays your collection of images from folders you add located on your PC, an external drive, or a network drive connected to your PC. Subfolders of the folders you add will be included, too.

The Photos app automatically displays the photos and videos in the Pictures folder on your PC and OneDrive by default.

If you sign in to the Photos app with your Microsoft account or work or school account, the Photos app will show your cloud-only content (photos and videos) from OneDrive. When you are signed in with the same account on all your devices, your OneDrive photos and videos will appear alongside the ones on this device.

If you sign out of your account in the Photos app, photos and videos saved only on (cloud-only content) will no longer appear in the Photos app and will be removed from any albums and video projects on the PC.

This tutorial will show you how to sign in and sign out of the Photos app with your Microsoft account or work or school account to show photos and videos saved only on OneDrive (cloud-only content) in Windows 10.
