Did you know your Windows 10 PC has a fast and easy way to tell your story with albums?

Select Share and then Create a Sway.

To get started, simply open your album, and select Share and then Create a Sway. After the album is uploaded to Sway you can play around with the layout, add words, animation and other fun effects –  and then share your Sway online with all your friends and family.
