This article explains how to enable or disable showing photos from your OneDrive account in the Microsoft Photos app on Windows 11.
The Microsoft Photos app is a built-in image viewer and editor that allows users to view, edit, and organize their photos and images. Photos you store on OneDrive will automatically appear in the Windows Photos app.
You can turn this on or off in the app’s Settings page.
Enabling or disabling the option to show OneDrive photos in the Photos app on Windows can be useful for those who want to keep their photos private or those who want to use a different image viewer.
By default, all the photos you store on OneDrive will appear in the Photos app on Windows. However, if you don’t want your OneDrive photos to be visible in the Photos app, you can turn this feature off in the app’s Settings page.
Conversely, you can turn this feature on if you want to see your OneDrive photos in the Photos app.
