    In the photo app in Windows 10 there are tons of pictures showing even though I removed all the source folders.

    If I added new folders, the old pictures are still showing.

    What do I need to do, so that only pictures from the CURRENT source folders are showing and NOT from the ones that I've already removed?

    Try this:
    in the Photo app, delete all sources, including OneDrive.
    Close and reopen.
    Add the sources again.

    This is an old thread but this issue was occurring on my computer, Windows 10 Pro, version 1909, build 18363.720. When clicking the Start button, 5 cached images would carousel-rotate on the Microsoft Photos application tile in the "Life at a glance" section. Here are the steps that worked for me.

    Open Settings. Navigate to Apps. On the Apps and features, locate Microsoft Photos in the list. Click the entry to expand it, then click on "Advanced options".

    Scroll down the options to the Reset section, where you will see action buttons for "Repair" and "Reset". I did not try the Repair option, but clicked Reset. You have to click again to confirm. After a brief mouse pointer animation, a check mark appears beside the Reset button.

    Checking my "Life at a glance" section, I no longer have cached images.
