    Yeah, there's not an option to arrange them at all in the Photos app like how you can somewhat arrange items into groups on the Start screen.

    Yep - After I enabled "Shuffle" - it GNDN" - "Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing". Maybe you have to restart the app?

    NOPE! The "Shuffle" thing only causes all of the images to randomly move around when you hit the "play" button" , you cannot arrange them manually at all.

    The shuffle thing only applies to the live tile - that is, it only shuffles the images displayed in the live tile; not the library itself.

    I guess Microsoft figures you don't want any type of order to the way the images are shown there. You would at least figure it displays the way it is in explorer, but noooooooo

    Anyway thanks for the help.
