    Figure 3.16. Confirm that you really want to delete both the folder and its contents.


  • Select one or more folders and press to delete them and their contents without being prompted for confirmation.

Facts about Folders

Folders can take a bit of getting used to:

  • When you select a folder in the Source pane, the display pane shows all the photos from all the albums, slideshows, and books inside that folder.

  • When you delete a folder, you delete the albums, slideshows, and books (though not the original photos, of course) inside it as well. Be careful!

  • All items in the Source pane, including folders, must have unique names, so you can't have both a saved slideshow called “European Vacation” and a folder with the same name.
