Bill. I should give up.
You are clearly too stupid to use a computer.


Give up.

Apple have built a secure walled garden around their sharing service,
intended for families, er, iFamilies.

Your son should be able to post snaps to other services on his device.
Whatsapp?

or wait until he comes home - which is what we used to wait for in the
old days, the slide show ...

He seems to have largely reverted to email so I now have quite a few
pictures and a video he took of the bear opening the door of the pickup
truck next door, climbing in and emerging with packet of crisps it had
found. Today he is in the Smoky Mountains.

I remember slide shows. Ages to set up, the smell of hot dust on the
lamp and, ultimately, tedium.

OK, I've given up.

It still insists that I log in from an Apple device before I can use
iCloud Photo Sharing in Windows.

As far as I can tell, I've followed all the instructions to the letter.

Bill, you are clearly not with the program; the Apple paradigm.
You need to decide who's side you are on.
This guy will help you make up your mind.

It reminds me of when I wanted to join a TomTom forum, so I could
complain about the wrong directions that lorry drivers using the devices
followed, and ended up trying to drive through our living room.
TomTom Forums needed my device serial number to register, but since I
didn't have a TomTom, this was impossible. Another kind of Catch-22
situation.

What is particularly bizarre is that one of the friends I help with
computer problems has just decided to move from his newish all singing
Windows desktop to a refurbished iMac for himself and one for his wife.

Using Teamviewer, I have supported him for years and years, so I am now
Teamviewering into his iMac. He has been on the phone virtually every
day since it arrived and I am now moderately up to speed on his iMac.

Together, we have managed to get most of his main files across, got his
printers working, installed a new scanner because the old one was
incompatible and found that it was a keyboard fault (stuck key) that had
stopped him being able to send any emails.

There were also a couple of days where he thought he had lost everything
on it, and had been looking for a cardboard box to pack it in ready to
return to the supplier for repair, having carried it into the hall.
After advice from my son, he found a backup and we got it going again.

He still thinks it looks great, has great speakers, and he still wants
to use it for his writing work.

His only current problem is that he copied all his photos over from the
PC and it sync'd them to his iCloud, which now says he has reached the
free limit and wants him to pay for more storage. I have told him he is
on his own searching for how to unsync stuff from the cloud.

I understand that people love Apple, but don't think I will join that
paradigm/universe.

Oh and Teamviewer has now decided that I am probably using it
commercially (absolutely not) and has started asking for money.

Thanks, Andy!

But during the process, everything Windows seemed to conspire against me
with updates.
Then tea was declared.
¬*I thought I had confirmed the Apple ID, allowed the W10, AV, Browser
and VMWare updates to happen, then it came back with a login screen.

On entering the email and password, it said that I have to use the login
with an iOS or OSx device to set it up before using the iCloud login for
Windows.


There are iOS emulators that will run on Windows. Using one of them
might help.

Get your son to log you in using his machine but your identity.

Here is where I have got to:
My emails, including the one from my son, come in via Turnpike on a
virtual 32-bit W7 machine. In trying to set up the Apple ID, I used
Firefox in the VM.
On checking today, it appears I have registered an Apple ID and
today, unlike last night,* I can get to the management screen.
I then tried logging in and going to "Manage" in the 64-bit W10 host
machine. This appears to have worked.
When I try to look at his photo album in either OS, I get the
following message:
"iCloud Photo Sharing is not available for this device".

Have you followed:

https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT205323


That tells you (or purports to tell you) how to upload photos from your
Apple gadget to iCloud. It doesn't tell you how to use a Windows machine
to look at somebody else's photos on iCloud.

I have an I device but because its got face ID you are supposed to only
need the apple ID only once, however in recent days every time I want to
download an app it wants the id and pass code,


Mine doesnít. Its happy with the Touch ID.

which of course I hid in a very safe place under a file name I've
forgotten. Bah humbug.


I use a proper password manager.

I think Apple id is only for those using apple stuff.


Not in the sense where stuff is hardware, its also used
for other things like converting pages docs etc if
someone sends you something in that format and
you donít have any apple device that can read it.

As Itunes is on pc though I'm not sure if you can grease their palm with
silver to get access to the Icloud.


You donít have to pay for that if you donít have any apple hardware.

tairs...
Son has sent me a message to subscribe to his photo album while he is on
holiday.

I click on the subscribe link, and it wants my Apple ID. To get an Apple
ID, it appears I have to have an iSomething. I don't.

Is there any way of getting an Apple ID, or some way round this?

All the rest of the family just use Windows/Android.
