Can Windows Photo Gallery - I remove profiles of scanning?

I use Windows Photo Gallery > import from a Scanner or a camera to scan documents.

I've created a few different profiles in the scan dialog box, but I want to get rid of some of them.  Someone knows how to do this?  I tried right clicking, pressing DELETE, looked in help, etc etc, but I don't see a way to organize/edit/delete these profiles.

Any help is appreciated!


Hi AnneLeeG,

Windows Photo Gallery uses the same control panel scanner and camera profile.

You can try the following steps and check if it helps:

1. click on Start

2. Select Control Panel and go to the scanner and camera

3 select scan profiles of boards and delete profiles from there to remove from the photo gallery

Hope this information is useful.

  • Windows Photo Gallery: changing/deleting profiles from scanning?

    In Windows Photo Gallery, I can go to 'File' > 'import from camera or Scanner... ". "> Select the scanner to import from > to the"New Scan"select a scanning profile.

    Problem: There is the option 'add profile... '. "for the drop down profile, but not visible in the way to remove or modify existing profiles. I looked into some Options and properties I could find in the Windows Photo Gallery, but nothing comes of these profiles.

    I can't add a new profile with the same name as an existing profile. So, this led to a bunch of useless profiles which can be removed and confusing things. Very annoying.

    Hey Monimonika,.
    I had the same problem, but found the answer. I use Windows Vista.

    If you go to control panel and open "Scanners and cameras", you select your scanner and then click on the button "Scan Profiles. This allows you to change the existing profiles and even reset what is the default value.

    Hope this helps (although long after you have submitted your question).

    Good luck

  • Remove the tags in Windows Photo Gallery

    This question is about the photo gallery Windows on a Vista operating system. My question is about the drop-down auto-liste of tags that grows each time you enter a new tag. Handy if you want to use something you've used before but a nuisance if you want to erase it. I figured out how to remove tags on the pictures still on the computer. My question is about the images that have been deleted and is not recoverable. There is always this tag leftover junk that applied to these photos that I deleted. appears whenever you try to add a new tag and resists all efforts to remove it. I contacted gateway computer people since they installed the operating system and got the solutions really wild just to remove the unnecessary tags. I thought that everything you enter, you should be able to delete... just... but this has proved to be a great puzzle. I hate to have to do a restore to original factory specifications and lose everything I've added to this day to get rid of these pesky tags. In addition, it simply repeats the problem unless I have find how to remove the little monsters.

    I hope someone can help...

    Hi Jo,.

    It's a good thing to be careful when you edit the registry.  In your case, as the registry key seems to be very specific to the Windows Photo Gallery, we can export the folder safely we are change.  Be sure to close the Windows Photo Gallery before you start.

    • Click the ball to Start .
    • Type regedit in the box start the search.
    • Navigate through the folders on the left at the following key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Gallery\Library\PreviewPane\LabelAssignment\MRU photo

    • Right click on the folder MRU in the left hand window and choose export.
    • Give it a file name (no matter what you name it) and save to the desktop.
    • In the right window, you will see keys named MRU00, MRU02, MRU03 etc...
    • Right-click on these keys and click on delete.

    Once you are finished, close the registry editor by clicking the x in the upper right and restart your computer.  When she returns to the top, open the Windows Photo Gallery and see if the tags are gone.

    If you receive errors of ANY opening of photo gallery, simply, do a right click on the file that you have already saved on the desktop and choose Import.  That will undo any changes that we have made.

    Please let me know if that helps.

    Hi, I have problems on developing an image as a wallpaper on my laptop.

    It comes up with 'The file that c:\users\daniel\appdata\roaming\microsoft\windows Photo Gallery\Windows Photo Gallery wallpaper.jpg could not be written.

    my computer is Windows vista Home premium and is about half a year. If anyone knows how to solve the problem of it not allow me to set a background please give me suggestions.


    Treat it as a corrupted user file.  To fix this use  Use the new administrator account to do this.  Follow the directions given and everything will be fine and your new admin account should work normally.  Once you have ccnfired you can access, to all your acccess all of your programs and files, you can delete the old user obsolete and corrupt.

    That's all there is to it.  Now that we know, this is the profile and not the system, the solution has been set for us.

  • How to remove the history of tag list box in Windows Photo Gallery

    Photo Gallery maintains a list of every tag I used.  I don't have these old tags more and I would like to clear them from the zone drop-down list to the right of the screen, but I can't find an option delete by clicking right or any other way.  How can I do this?

    Hi sailorsteve,

    To clear the tag suggestions, follow the steps mentioned below:

    Important:- This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click on the number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows:

    1. close Windows Photo Gallery.

    2. go to start | Run | type regedit and press ENTER. (On Vista you will be prompted by the user account control dialog box if you have not logged as local administrator.)

    3. in the search for the Publisher of the registry at this location: HKEY_CURRENT_USERS\Software\Microsoft\Windows Photo Gallery\Library\PreviewPane\LabelAssignment\MRU

    4 in the pane, you should see the list of tags that appear in the auto-suggest list.  You remove the (s) you want.

    5. When you are finished, close the registry editor and open Photo Gallery.

    Note: Make this manual workaround solution does not remove the actual Tags of files or the database of the library.  So, even if you delete all the items in this list from this registry location, your actual tags remain intact.  Only, this clears the auto-suggest list.

    In fact you can not save pictures of facebook/pinterest by any browser just by right clicking on it. You must click on this image and it will open in a new page and now right click on the image and it will be a backup image option and now your file will be jpeg. Please try and let me know.
