I am not able to view the photos from "files" by swiping the screen. Need to open the photos one by one.My Android version is Nougat. Kindly help how I can view the photos by simply swiping the screen.

  • "Files" is a (simplified) file manager, not a gallery app. Don't you have a dedicated gallery app on the phone?

  • Hi am using file manager and ES File explorer , it is working fine in both the apps.But i was looking for the file app to be corrected as it is the default ap Mar 8, 2017 at 6:45
  • So you mean the built-in "Files" is now your default picture viewing app? That shouldn't happen at all if you ask me...

  • Can you suggest a good app for picture viewing which is suitable for a normal user.I am facing some issues with both the apps i installed. Mar 8, 2017 at 7:05
  • Well technically app recommendations are off-topic on this site, so out of respecting the rules I will not make explicit recommendations; however, just searching "Gallery" in Play Store would yield plenty of results for you to try out, some of them are tried-and-true as I heard from users I know.
