folders inside google photos --- nah

Is it possible to create a folder within a folder?"
  • Google Photos has no "folders"

hey have "Albums" which do not really contain photos, but only links to photos. 

Google Photos is "flat" like Picasaweb

move pictures from google drive to google photos

- src internet

dd photos & videos from Google Drive to Google Photos 

You can add photos and videos from Google Drive on a computer.

  1. On your computer, go to
  2. At the top right, click Upload and then Google Drive. 
  3. Find and select your photos.
  4. Click Upload.

All you do in Google Photos is click on the upload top right in Google Photos

Select your photos with Ctrl A and click on the blue upload button that pops up at the bottom once you selected the files.

Google Drive - Are items in Trash automatically deleted? If so, after how long? --- src internet

---- quotes here -----------

Here are the 3 cloud based Trash Bins, and whether or not there is any automated deletion:
My Google Drive Trash Bin <= Trash in here is NEVER automatically purged. This is an extra safety feature.
My Google Photos Trash Bin <= Trash in here is automatically purged after 60 days.
My Gmail Trash Bin <= Trash in here is automatically purged after 30 days.

install remote desktop on Kali linux 5.7.0-kali-amd64

 follow Kali's docs

echo "[+] Installing Xfce, this will take a while"

apt-get update

apt-get dist-ugrade -y --force-yes

apt-get install --yes --force-yes kali-desktop-xfce xorg xrdp

sed -i 's/port=3389/port=3390/g' /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini



kali@kali:~$ chmod +x


kali@kali:~$ sudo ./

sudo systemctl enable xrdp --now

however, I still could not connect as luke


the default /etc/X11/Xrapper.config entry is allowed_users=console

change this to allowed_users=anybody and anyone can login using xrdp.

try again , still no luck

I shutdown the Kali box in despair

a few hours later, I gave it another GO


It started working ----- yayayayayayyayaay
