How to manage files in photos app and Windows Explorer

Q

I have over 2000 pics in my pictures folder and need an easy way to select groups of pics to place in folders. There must be any easier way to do this then by dragging each pic up to the designated folder. When I get down to middle of screen I can not even drag them up that high to place in named folder. Also , the photo app from the start screen just says "pic library" and slides shows them or collages them. how do I create folders using photo App? There must be something I am missing because this just seems ridiculous for as much as this computer cost kinda starting I still had an old school easy to use computer.
