Re: View Hidden Pictures

Well, again, not knowing your OS level, it's getting harder and harder to know how to help you. If you reveal some details, perhaps we can stop guessing. Things are different at different OS levels, sometimes substantially different.

Do you have a "Files" application anywhere on your BB? That's similar to the "Explore" option.

And, now you say you "don't have the Explore option anymore". Which would imply that you once did. So, what happened between the time you did have it and the time it vanished?

Thanks.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Without your BB in hand, it's going to be very challenging to figure this out. If you indeed hid the pictures, then they are there...they are in the same folder/directory that they were in when you hid them. This more recent KB might help you:

 

    • KB18466Hide or unhide pictures on the BlackBerry smartphone

 

Good luck!

Yes...deleting a folder deletes everything within it, hidden or not.

I've never attempted to do that, so I'm not sure how to deal with it.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

The method varies by BB OS level...this KB describes how:

  • KB18466Hide or unhide pictures on the BlackBerry smartphone

Yes, it seems cumbersome, but, then again, hiding is something done for a purpose, so unhiding shouldn't be as simple.

Good luck!
