I have a question.. recently I was using my brothers laptop and I opened his drive which I shouldn’t cuz it’s a personal thing and there was some personal stuff anywho I found pictures of my nieces and nephews when they were little so I downloaded them all and sent it to myself but after sending it I realized that I should have asked him first since it was his laptop but now I cannot say to him that I have downloaded pictures because he will ask me why I opened his drive without his permission? is it wrong in Islam to take things without permission?

I am thinking to delete those pictures and next time ask him first before downloading them is that the right thing to do?
