    Default Unable to view photos in the Photo App in windows 8 RP

    Hello everyone here,

    I just installed windows 8 release preview. I am testing apps. I found photo app can't work. It will not show any photos.

    After Including a Folder in Pictures library, it still can't show.

    What's the problem? Thanks.

    Cool Re: Unable to view photos in the Photo App in windows 8 RP

    As we've said, repeatedly, all the apps are not ready for prime time. That simply means that they don't all work yet.

    With each new version of Win 8 BETA, more apps do work though. By October they should ALL work.

    If you need to work with photos, go back to your Legal OS.
    Or even install a third party Photo Editor program.

    Good Luck!

    The Photos app will display the contents of you Pictures library by default. If it is not showing up, then it might be a Photo app corruption. I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the Photo app and check if that helps.

    OK, for me and the others not familiar with the process.....
    How to you uninstall or reinstall an App in Windows 8???
    Isn't it a Part of Windows?

    I wouldn't even mess with the photo app. I'd just install "Photo Filtre" and be done with it. And, I'd have a nice little program that I could use on other PC's running other OS's.
    I already have it, love it and install it on every one of my PC's. I also share it with many of my customers who work a lot with Pictures. Did I mention..... IT's FREE!

    The version I like and use daily was getting hard to find, so I uploaded it to Box.com for safe keeping and sharing with friends. Enjoy!

    I can't uninstall or reinstall an App in Windows 8.
    Whenever I am in App Metro, immediately I will strike out on their desktop.
    You can imagine, App Metro is not intended for my computer

    The metro apps do not all work all that well yet. This is a beta OS. I would suggest to reinstall you Win 8 RP.
