Windows 10: Photos : how to browse next and previous files in the same folder ? Solved

    Photos : how to browse next and previous files in the same folder ?

    I use "Photos" app as default viewer when i manually open a picture file from explorer. I don't really like it, except for its touch feature but i give it a try..

    One missing feature is that once i opened a file in it from explorer, i can't browse others files in same folders from application.

    Is there a way to enable this ability ?

    I rather like the photos app. You can open a particular photo and use the left and right arrows to navigate to the other photos in the same folder. This behaviour should be enabled by default.

    This doesn't work like this for me : i open a particular picture file and i can't navigate to others pictures files located in the same folder.
    I made a new try and in fact : it works with others folders than the one with which i have the pb :

    The folder for which it doesn't work is inside my Google drive sync folder.
    I tried a folder inside my "dropbox sync" folder and it works too.

    I tried to copy my concerned folder to another location and : it works when it is not anymore in Google drive folder sync !

    Any idea ?

    I'm having the same issue. For some reason the Photos app doesn't index any images if they are located in any Google Drive folders, even if the folder(s) are included in the Pictures library.

    It seems that this issue is related to windows indexing issue with Google drive :!topic/drive/5EPuLuwmLGI;context-place=forum/driveAnd
