    No arrows in Photo preview ONLY in Google Drive folders


    Photo previews of photos within a folder that is being sync'd to my Google Drive are NOT showing previous / next arrows. The same photos within a folder not being sync'd to my Drive show arrows.

    Anyone know what the deal is here?

    It depends on what program you are using for previewing those files with.

    I would try something else. Especially with your resolution set so high.

    Try adding your Google drive to Windows Index

    If that doesn't work, add your Google drive to a Library. You can create a new Library or add the folder to an existing Library
    Adding a location to a Library automatically adds that location to the index.

    Tried both indexing the Drive folder and included my Drive folder within the Pictures library but still isn't working.

    You do not need to add Google Drive to your Index. It actually slows down finding and loading photos. The arrows are because of your high resolution, not indexing.

    There are keyboard shortcuts to go through photos. Left and Right arrows have always been the change to next or previous picture. 7 Keyboard Shortcuts for Photo Viewer If you can assign a mouse setting to scroll left or right, that can help. I use the Logitech M570 Trackball and it comes with two extra buttons that can be reassigned for picture scrolling.

    It's not a resolution issue. Keyboard shortcuts don't work either.

    The arrows show on the non-Google drive folder - how could high resolution affect only the Google drive folder?

    Indexing can slow down searching IF the index is huge (indexing all files on C: or everything on the computer).


    Mucci,

    Please check your Google Drive folder security settings

    Advanced
    System should have full rights
    Permissions should be inherited

    Also, is there an Album for Google drive in the App?

    I clicked on "Enable inheritance" and the advanced security tab went from this:

    No arrows in Photo preview ONLY in Google Drive folders-capture.jpg

    to this:

    ...however I still don't have arrows in Photos preview. I'm not sure what you're talking about with the Album for Google Drive.
