Mylio’s interface on desktop devices offers four key sections:

  • Navigation Bar
  • Views
  • Details Panel
  • Quick Actions Bar

Navigation Bar

Navigate back – Clicking the back arrow will take you to the previous folder, album, or image.

Search – Clicking the magnifying glass icon allows you to search through your photos and folders using keywords, ratings, people, map locations, recent imports, and pinned searches.

Filter – Clicking the funnel icon opens the Filter bar allowing you to find and view images by a wide variety of criteria including Date, Type, Categories, People, Rating, Camera, and more.

Import – Clicking the Import icon allows you add media from your computer, external hard drive, camera, memory card, online service, and more.

Notifications & Activity Center – Clicking on the chat bubble will open the Notifications and Activity Center and show you what Mylio is working on as well any issues you should be aware of.

Sync Status – At a glance, Sync Status shows the number of media waiting to sync to the device you are using and to your Vaults. Clicking the Sync Status icon for your device or Vault(s) will take you to the Devices section of the Dashboard view.

View menu – Clicking the View menu icon (three vertical dots in the upper right corner) allows you to access Mylio’s main Settings and Help Menu.


All Photos – The All Photos view shows every photo in your Mylio Library.

Calendar – The Calendar view organizes your library based on when a photo was taken and displays your photos on a calendar. It can also highlight specific events from your life and take you directly to an album from that event.

Map – The Map view organizes photos based on where a photo was taken and displays them by location on a world map. Mylio does this automatically for photos that have GPS metadata.

People – The People view helps organize your library based on who is in the photo. As you start tagging the people in your photos, Mylio’s facial recognition will help you tag them in future photos.

Albums – The Albums view allows you to group and organize photos without affecting their location on your hard drive. Albums are virtual storage locations, like a playlist for your photos. One photo can be assigned to multiple albums.

Folders – The Folders view represents how your folders are organized on your hard drive and connected external drives.

Dashboard – The Dashboard view shows Getting Started tips, Notifications, recommended Actions, Devices, Library stats, Help and more.

Details Panel

Info – The Info Panel lets you view and manage information about your photos including title, captions, date, keywords, categories, location, and other metadata.

Map – The Map Panel allows you to view location information or assign a new location to a photo or set of photos.

Edit – The Edit Panel lets you edit photos and includes an auto-enhance option, stylized presets, and other adjustments to make your photo look its best.

Sync – By default, the Sync Panel is hidden. You can enable it via the View Menu > Settings > Advanced > Sync Panel (toggle the switch to the on position). The Sync panel gives an overview of your connected devices and any sync activity.

Quick Actions Bar

Rating & Tagging – Clicking on the Rating & Tagging icon will expand the Rating bar and allows you to easily tag photos with star ratings, color labels, and flags.

Share/Export – Clicking the Export icon allows you to easily share your photos to email, social media, export to disk, print, and more.

Rotate Left – Clicking the Rotate icon will rotate selected images 90 degrees to the left.

Face Tagging & Batch Tagging – Clicking the Face Tagging icon (Single Photo View) or Batch Tagging icon (Grid View) allows you to tag people in a photo or approve face tagging Mylio has automatically done.

Delete – Clicking the Trash Can icon will delete selected photos from your Mylio Library and the file system on all devices.

Add New – Clicking the Plus Sign (+) icon adds a new Folder, Album, or Person depending on your selected View.

Show/Hide Details Panel – Opens and closes the Details Panel.

Zoom – The Zoom slider allows you to adjust the size of the information being displayed. Use it to adjust the size of the grid, zoom in or out on a map, or an individual image.

Clipboard – Clicking the Clipboard icon opens the Mylio Clipboard, a temporary storage space that’s convenient for copying and pasting photos in Mylio.

Actions Menu – Clicking the Actions Menu icon (three lines in the bottom-right corner) displays a series of actions you can take with your current selection. This includes selecting, moving, deleting, and adding photos to an album and much more. The Actions Menu can also be accessed by right-clicking on a selection.
