Invalid file handle on Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to tag photos, on Windows 10, and keep getting the error message 'Invalid file handle'. I select multiple photos, and try to tag them in the subject, author and copyright fields.

    I find that some photos can be tagged, but the majority give the error message. I can copy the photos to another computer running Windows 10, and I can successfully tag them there, but this is inconvenient. 

    I have checked the properties of photos that can be tagged and those that cannot, and they appear to be identical.

    Can anyone tell me how to change the settings on my system to allow multiple tagging of the photos?

  • I am having the same problem.  I get the same error message on some photos even when tagging them individually.

  • I was having the same problem with some but not all photos.  I opened the ones with issues in Photos and edited them (sometimes a very small change) and saved them.  I was then able to tag them.  Annoying to have to do but it did work.
