Hi Experts:

I just got a laptop with windows 8.

it shows all the photos from my document, and facebook and others.

instead of going to diff apps to backup the photos,

question:  is there any way to back up all photos in windows 8, i.e.  all photos reqardless where it gets it.   i thought windows 8 copied those from facebook and others and stores it somewhere on my laptop.

thanks very much for your help.

You can press "Win+PrntScr" keys together and Windows 8 will automatically save your screenshot in your "Pictures" library folder. The screenshot will be saved with the name "Screenshot.png".

sorry, i may not make it clear enough.

1.  I want to backup all photos to my external hard drive including whatever Windows 8 captured or downloaded from facebook, my mac os account.... etc.  

2.  of course, i can go to each app or device, but it will be good if i can do the copying at one place - windows 8

thanks...
