Clear recently viewed and recently added photos?

[ Edited ]

Please tell me there is a way to remove these.  That whole section is useless, IMO.  If there is no way to remove these, is there a 3rd party app available to view photos/videos?

Re: Clear recently viewed and recently added photos?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Nope...that is WAD -- Working As Designed. But you could I suppose just use the native File Manager...for folders containing pictures / videos, it will show you thumbnails of them.

Good luck!

Re: Clear recently viewed and recently added photos?

 I find this feature very undesirable. I admit that I have friends that send me some questionable pictures and have even taken some pictures they shouldn't have with my phone while "checking it out" but I didn't realize how this would linger around indefinitely. I am confident that there are others that are displeased with this oversight and could change their decisions to take a photo they may not want around for the lifetime of the device. This new BB10 model has a much improved camera with overdue features but this is a huge disappointment and something one would think is a standard feature to clear out recent files. Now myself and others have to not allow others to check out the phone (which is a good part of free Marketing) or be prepared to explain yourself and the photos that cannot be removed.

Hi,

 

I just opened 30 and 90% pushed their way out. I opened another 30 then another 30 (all different pix stored on the phone) and a few of the unpopular pictures still remain. That was a great suggestion and would have been a half-fix solution but didn't work 100%. I can even highlight the file by holding down on the picture but when I choose DELETE the file remains. What a severe inconvenience this is becoming.

Re: Clear recently viewed and recently added photos?

If you goto the File Manager Tile and open it, you can then search for the offending images or Gifs.  Tap the magnifing glass image at the bottom of the File Manager app and enter T for Tumblr, J for Jpeg, G for Gifs, P for Photo, and I for Imange.  This will list all of those file located anywhere on the device, and allows for discrete deletion.  You will have to choose to search the device or the memory card.  Good luck.
