Is that going to be okay?

Before I post and people jump on me, which has become way too common SE sites, here's the sample outline:

I have taken a lot of screenshots on my iPhone over a long time for lots of reasons.

I need to be able to extract from iPhone to Windows 8.1 desktop, ALL of them or SELECTED bunch of them.

Given the structures & mechanisms of iOS 9.x it seems to keep/ mark or filter all or most screenshots as if in a sub folder under Photos called "Screenshots".

From what I gather this is kind of a virtual folder on iOS

I am wondering if there are iOS Apps & Windows Programs that I can use in conjunction to extract these screenshots from the iPhone and "permanently delete" them from the Phone as they are taking up space.

I know for sure that I can't do this purely via software/ apps on one. I'd be surprised if there is a way.

Most likely I'll need:

  1. iOS App:

    • that can organize, tag, move or permanently create an isolated folder of screenshots or something that can be filtered/ recognized from the Windows side as a separate 'entity' {Given that even all Sub folders under Photos are technically only one large folder of Photos}
  2. Windows Desktop Application/ Program:

    • That allows me to selectively target this specific folder/ virtual folder tag.
  3. Ideally, both of these are from a common vendor designed to work well together.

  4. A scenario that popped up in my head

    • An iOS App that allows us to export & clear out all these screenshots to a Flash/ Memory/ External disk - then it should be simpler to manage from Windows

    "since there were no replies" – well, sometimes those take a little more than 5 hours :)

I don't see any reason why this should not fit. It's clearly

  • asking for software
  • listing requirements
  • giving a use-case so one gets an idea what it is about

It's only missing a few details (must it be free, or how much you're willing to pay? Any license restrictions, e.g. must it allow for commercial use?) – but that doesn't make it off-topic.
