Sounds like pictures were unloaded from a memory card to your hard drive.

For me, adding multiple attachments (photos) to an email, it requires that I flip back/forth between a graphics viewer
(so I can see which picture is which), and the email that I am attaching the pictures to.
You can use My Computer or Windows Explorer (Thumbnail view) to see tiny "thumbnail images", or you can use a graphics viewer program.
In the menus across the top (File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help), click View, Thumbnails.
A free graphics viewer
program called IrfanView
is listed here:Post # 3

As far as organizing your photos, you can decide whether you want them all on your hard drive, or all on your external hard drive.
(Important ones could be backed up/burned to a CD in case of hard drive failure.)
When I helped a friend of mine organize her photos (elderly lady in her late 70's), we created a main folder called Photos, and then created sub-folders inside the Photos folder like this:Photos
- Home Inventory
You can Drag/Drop
the photos to the appropriate folder,
or you can select multiple files at once, either by using the Ctrl key
or the Shift key
is for non-sequential files, like the first one, the third one, the fifth one, etc.Shift
is to select the first file you click, the last file you click, and all files in between.
Here's a little more info on selecting multiple files:How do I select or highlight multiple files?http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000771.htm
Some people are comfortable with Drag/Drop.
Some people end up frustrated with Drag/Drop, because if your finger "stutters" on the mouse,
you can accidentally drop your files in an unintended location, and you might not know where the files got dropped.
If that happens, click Edit, Undo Move
and it puts the files back where they were.
Some people prefer to use Cut/Paste
, to avoid the finger stuttering on the mouse issue.To arrange files by Date
, when you are in a My Computer or Windows Explorer screen,
click View, Arrange Icons by, Modified
Another quick way, when you see the column header (that says Name, Size, Type, Date Modified), you can Right click on the column header, and select "Date Created". It adds a "Date Created" column. You can then left click/drag the Date Created column where you want it (perhaps before Date Modified). Then, left click (one time) on the column header that says Date Created, and it puts the files in date order. If you click it again, it puts them in date order in the other direction (ascending order vs descending order).
Hope that gives you what you need
