The PhotoSpring Windows app stays on and waits for new photos to appear in the folder its set up to watch. When it sees a new photo it will upload it automatically to the frame for you.
Since the PhotoSpring app needs to stay on, we had to code it as a Windows Service app. You can access the app through the system tray - which is typically located at the bottom right of your screen.
You can see it by clicking on the up arrow. A menu of all service apps will appear:
Find the PhotoSpring icon. You can:
- Right click the PhotoSpring icon to access its menu and see its status
- Left click the PhotoSpring icon to open the app to modify your settings
