    Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Photos icon.
    It is an icon of a shape made up of different colors, and underneath, it says the word "Photos". Your photos application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. We want to demonstrate how to turn on and off the option to back up files from the Photos application while roaming. To do that, we need to find the settings menu.

    The option we want now is labeled "Roaming".
    Underneath it says, "Back up photos and videos when roaming on a data network". Currently, this option is turned off, which is the default setting. That's because there could be some expensive roaming costs. However, we may want to use this function, especially if we're taking photos while travelling and we want to back the photos up to protect them.

    To turn this option on, just press down anywhere on that section and the switch on the right will turn turquoise, which indicated that it is on.
    To turn it off, press down on it again. The switch will turn gray, meaning that it is off.
