Apps Add or Remove iCloud Photos in Photos app in Windows 11

  • Staff

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove iCloud Photos on the left navigation pane in Photos app for your account in Windows 11.

The Microsoft Photos app included in Windows is a rich media experience that empowers you to do more with your photos and videos. View, organize, and share photos from your PC, OneDrive, iCloud Photos (only on Windows 11) and other devices all from one gallery.

iCloud Photos is directly integrated into the Photos app on Windows 11. This iCloud Photos integration will make it easier for those with an iPhone to have direct access to all their memories in one organized place.

To bring your iCloud Photos into the Photos app, make sure your Photos app is updated and then install the iCloud for Windows app, all from the Microsoft Store. From there, sign in and choose to sync your photos, and all your iCloud Photos content will appear automatically in your Photos app.

You can choose to not show iCloud Photos to the left navigation in the Microsoft Photos app.

That's it,
