Does anyone know how I can change the location of where pictures/videos are saved using the Camera App in Windows 8?
I've had a look in the hidden and very difficult to get into "Windows Apps" folder but have had no luck.
The camera app - just like the music and video apps in Windows 8 - rely on the Windows Libraries (in this case the "Pictures" library).
Each library can have multiple folders + 1 folder for saving new data. So the camera app will save photos to the default saving location of your "Pictures" library.
If you want to change that, open Windows Explorer ([Win] + [E]); in the left pane right-click on the pictures library, click properties. There you can add or remove folders and set any of these folders as saving location.
Note that the camera app in particular will create a sub-folder, I have not found a way to change that behavior.
