    Windows 8 picture gallery problem


    Hello guys!

    I have just got windows 8 and I have 220 pictures in 'My pictures' folder. Only 117 are showing. I think i added the rest at later date and for some reason when i access the pictures gallery feature on windows 8 i cannot see the newly added pics. Can someone help me?

    Hello kelthebrave. Welcome to EightForums.

    What program are you using to view the pictures gallery? Can you see them in file explorer? in thumbnails? Do they have different file name extensions? Have you tried to use Windows Photo Viewer rather than the metro photo app?

    Open with - Change Default Program in Windows 8

    Someone else will add another suggestion.
