    How to stop files from showing in Photo Live Tiles ?


    Is there a way to stop a specific photo file or folder from displaying in Photos Live Tiles ?
    We have certain photos that we would like not so show up in Live Tiles.

    Open the Photo App

    Choose a photo you really like and open it.

    Right Click and in the lower left corner choose "Set As"

    Then chose App Tile and photos will no longer cycle.

    The chosen photo will become the 'static' App Tile.


    OR

    When viewing any photo in the App, hit Windows Key - C to open
    the Charms Bar and chose Settings/Options and use the slider to turn off

    "Shuffle photos on the app tile"

    Create a new folder in root of C: and name it No Show

    Then move those "certain" ones from your Pictures Folder into the No Show Folder.

    Thanks for quick reply!
    Got it, there is no way to stop individual photos from cycling in live tiles without relocating them.
    again, thanks
