    I no longer have any photos on this computer. Windows 10 keeps changing things and now my photos are missing.

    The photo's are most likely still on your HD. Open File Explorer > View Tab > check "Hidden Items.
    In the search box Top right in Explorer type *jpg it will locate the files and folder path if they are still present on the HD.

    And in the Search box don't forget the . as in *.jpg, it usually is important as the jpg is the file extension/format and the * is a wildcard replacing a particular file name, quite useful in searches.
