I'm unable to share, post or print pictures. The only pictures that are allowing me to do that is on device, which it's about 20. It doesn't give me an option to see all pictures and albums like before. My phone has all pictures on it when I look. But the only ones I can share is located on device, not gallery or anywhere else. What I can to change this please?

I assume what you are saying is that the majority of your photo's are store online in OneDrive or the like.  In order to share  them with your phone you must first download them to your device. 

Did you purposely move them to online photo storage?

Unless you change things, photos taken with the camera go into the camerqq folder.  All other apps usually go into a folder named after the app like screen shoot, Lightroom, download etc. 

And no, photos stored in cloud storage usually have to be shared through the cloud app like Google photos etc.  Otherwise you need to download them to your device before you can share them.

I have thousands of photos taken with my camera. Since yesterday, the camera folder only has device pics, which a few screenshots.
Details are
Internal storage/DCIM/Screenshot or
Storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Screenshot.
