I imported shared decks from anki web to my desktop

I opened up the desktop Anki and it shows that the deck is added under browse section

but the main deck section does not show these imported decks

I tried going to browse section and clicking on 'whole collection' or targeting the imported collection -- but these new decks do not show up under the general deck section

help!!???

thank you!!!

    If these decks are not showing up there, it should mean they do not have any cards at all.

    hi, so when I open up browser, click on whole collection, I do see that
    there are many decks -- but when I go to my deck page - those collections
    don't show up -- just a few that I downloaded a week ago -- also, each card
    deck line seems to only have 20 cards in them if they were made by others
    -- that doesn't seem correct either

    help!

    I would show you a picture - but need to figure that out first

    That number you see in the main Anki window is not how many cards a deck has, but how many cards you are planning to review today. Please read: Deck Options

    thanks for clarifying that! I'll need to look into that as I started using
    anki for one week

    I still don't know why the imported decks are not showing in my decks though

    hi addons_zz ----

    for some reason, the new deck I was trying to find got buried in another
    deck -- I had a deck called "biology" and the imported deck was biology
    something -- so not sure how or why -- but assuming that they are all there

    what is the number of new cards that most people recommend studying per
    day? mine was automatically set for 20 when I started using Anki

    but now that you showed me - I went in to change it by using 'Settings'
    then 'Options' -- and increasing the card number to 50

    this automatically changed all my decks to 50

    Please see

    Anki's not showing me all my cards!

    When you change deck options, it will affect all decks that are using that options group.
