​This is for "live tile updates"  What the heck is that?  I have almost 12,000 files in here.  This computer is a few yrs old. But come on 12,000 photos?  I looked at quite a few and I really do not care about them.  What is a live tile?  If I needed 1-2 of these 12,000 files and delete them all what happens?  Is there a way I can tell windows to calm down, collect less useless pictures

​IT APPEARS to just be storing random photos, not even ones I cared about.  Most of these photos appear to be facebook profile pictures though I do not know.. Thousands I do not ever recognize, is this typical?  Stop it windows!  I did not intentionally download 99% of what I looked at.
