Windows 10: How do I rearrange the tiles in Pictures

    How do I rearrange the tiles in Pictures


    I have a lot of pics and documents in Saved Pictures.

    I want to rearrange them so that they are in a logical order and re group them by interest etc....

    I tried right clicking , sliding, copy and paste.........nothing works.

    I assumed I would have been able to do it the same way your regroup the tiles on the desktop.

    I guess I was wrong.

    Can anyone help me ?

    Thanks

    Use folders and name them according to your grouping wishes, easier to find later...

    There are probably 3rd party programs for this but the way I do it is to name the pictures with a 1. xyz, 2. xyz sequence and so on. They will then arrange in numerical order.

    Hi,
    Use real names and a simple numbering or lettering system.
    Using numbers try Name-0001 and so on.

    It's working.

    I found the easiest way was to organize them in categories for ones that are closely associated.

    Random - for those that don't have a category

    Trading - if it was linked to my Trading / Brokerage accounts.

    Coal - if it was linked to the coal industry

    Oil - if it was linked to oil

    Then it would alphabetize them by coal, oil etc......and the first letter that followed them.

    I tried the number thing, 1,2,3 but I found that if I wanted to add a tile to a number sequence that I would have to renumber and re-save everyone that followed it..........no thanks.

    It's a shame we can't just drag and drop, like we do on the desktop.

    Thanks for your help !

    A note: they are thumbnail-type icons, can't be moved like the tiles can be on the desktop. They are arranged by name just as if in the Details View. Some settings in a Folder work best when first set in the Details View.

    "I tried the number thing, 1,2,3 but I found that if I wanted to add a tile to a number sequence that I would have to renumber and re-save everyone that followed it..........no thanks."

    I do this all the time; eg- I have 10 pictures of a golf hole arranged in order from tee to green. Then I find 3 more to intermingle into the sequence. I re-arrange the pictures in FastStone Image Viewer - http://www.faststone.org/ then drag the new array into this tiny renaming program - http://www.fauland.com/af5.htm and renumber the new sequence in new order. Quickly DONE !

    How come I could not give you a thumbs up?
    It said I had to spread reputation around before I can give it to you.
    This is new to me.

    Thanks

    Its probably because you gave it to me Thanks. Or maybe you had given Berton a thumbs up previously.

    As to the numbering... try something 1a, 1b or 1.1, 1,2 etc if you want drop more images into a sequence. Always ways and means, well nearly always.
