Microsoft has included a dedicated Photos app with Windows for more than a decades, after first launching the app with Windows 8 in 2012. But now the company is introducing another way to view your images with a Gallery view in File Explorer.
It’s making its debut in Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23435, which is rolling out to members of the Windows Insider program on the Dev Channel.
Gallery shows your most recent photos in a fashion that’s similar to the gallery or camera roll views you might see on smartphones and tablets. There’s a Collection drop-don menu that lets you select folders with photos that you want to see in the gallery.
The Gallery view can also be accessed from the file picker dialog, making it easier to see previews of images before adding them to a document or uploading them to a website.
You can find other changes in the latest Windows 11 Insider Dev Channel release in Microsoft’s announcement.
The time spent making this would have been better spent letting us move the taskbar on whatever corner we wanted and allowing items on the taskbar to not combine.
Interesting. Do the thumbnails still behave like file icons?
Wow, great. Anyway… Something something mesa 23.1 Linux 6.3
It’s a long, long time since I used a Windows machine so I’m astonished this is only happening now. This has been standard fare in Ubuntu for ….. ages; maybe a decade or more.
The amazing thing is that people pay for windows. Why ?????
