    Gary, At first I was able to click on my picture to follow your prompts. Something happened and now my picture folder is not there any longer. What can I do to get my picture/folder back on the "people" icon?

    Kent: Do you mean you don't see yourself as one of the people anymore? Perhaps you scrolled down? You could have deleted it, but that takes a few steps. Hard for me to tell what you are seeing.

    Gary: Yes, that is what happened. I no longer see myself as one of the people. What can I do to remedy this?

    Kent: Go to a Photo with you in it. In the View menu make sure Show Face Names is on. Click on the "unnamed" under your face and name it. Then go back to People, to you, and scroll to the bottom to confirm more.

    Thanks Gary! That brought my picture back up on the group of People. I appreciate your help! The only thing that I notice now is that when I click on my photo in the People group, none of my photos are are showing up that were showing up previously. I'm not sure what I did to cause this. Is there a way to once again link all of my photos to my photo that is once again in the People tab? Thank you.

    Kent: Scroll to the bottom and use "Confirm Additional Photos."

    Gary, when I do that it indicates that there are no further photos of me. I must have really messed this thing up! Oh well, what ya gonna do? Thanks for trying to help me out of this predicament.

    Kent: You can go into more photos, find yourself, and assign a name. Try that a few times and then try to "Confirm" more again.

    Hi Gary, one thing I did notice today is that somehow or another, in playing with this yesterday I seemed to have combined my picture in the People tab with another individual in the People tab. When I click on this other individual, in the People tab, all of my pictures are there that were there previously along with this other person. Is there any way that I can separate myself from this other person in the People tab? Is it possible to rename this People tab to contain my name?

    Kent: Ah, so that's what happened. You merged your group with that other person. Just renamed that to you (click on the name) and then go through it and change the name on the photos that aren't you.
