    Does anybody happen to know how iCloud syncs photo stream with windows? I have it enabled but I have no idea how to get it to sync with my PC. Does anybody happen to know how photo stream works on windows? Thanks.

    How would I get the pictures from iCloud onto my PC? If I recall correctly you should be able to pick a folder for Photo Stream to download to or something.

    You have to download the iCloud Control Panel for Windows, check Photo Stream, then choose the folder.

    It syncs with the cloud which then connects to the iCloud Control Panel on the computer.

    Actually it's iCloud Control Panel > check Photo Stream, click the Options button, then choose the download folder.

    I was a windows PC user up until about a year ago. My advice to u would be...throw that windows PC in the trash and get a mac. Apple products are an ecosystem all their own. I will never own another Windows machine...EVER. I am so happy with everything working together so seamlessly. Now I have iPhone, iPad 2, apple tv, iMac, & AP Extreme. It all just works.

    We're not all fortunate enough to afford Mac's, nor every single Apple product, unfortunately.
