    Have just returned with my new Lumia 930 and used the Windows Phone app for Windows 8.1 to save my photos onto my PC.

    But I cannot figure out where it has saved them! There is no setting I can find to direct where to save my photos.

    I see that on the phone itself there is an option to upload them to OneDrive. Which I haven't done.

    I'd appreciate all help as to how save AND sync photos between my phone and my PC and/or OneDrive.

    Thanks.

    In my case, the Photos that are both synced and saved by my Windows Phone App for Desktop in Pictures* > From [name of your phone]. For example, mine are in Pictures* > From gpobernardo 1020.

    Also, you can change the default save location of your Photos in the Windows Phone app for Desktop. You can find it under PC > Photos > Add or remove folders. A popup window will appear displaying a list of folders; context menu clicking on any of those folders will give you the option to make it the default save location.

    * - This refers to the default Pictures folder of your PC/laptop. I have purposely changed the name of this default folder (and the other folders, such as Documents, Videos, Downloads) to omit the word "My", but the functionality will not change.
