Quik for desktop will now scan these folders and add any GoPro media to the "Media" and "Recently Added" bins. PLEASE NOTE: Any videos/photos coming from 3rd party cameras WILL NOT be recognized in Quik for desktop.

If you've already added media folders, and want to remove them:
  • Access the General Settings by clicking the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner

PLEASE NOTE: If there isn't an "X" next to your file location, that's because it's the Import Location (please reference the above screenshot) . You'll need to change the import location in order to remove that folder from the list.

If you'd like to add additional folders for Quik for desktop to scan:
  • Access the General Settings by clicking the gear icon in the upper right- hand corner.
