Windows 11 updated in September 2023 and File Explorer did too!

As part of the update, File Explorer has a new Gallery view of your images.

  • To manage your files, right-click on a file or folder for options like Cut, Copy, Paste, Rename, and Delete. You can also drag and drop files into different folders.

With these steps, you can fully utilize the new File Explorer Gallery feature in Windows 11.

If you don't see the new Gallery feature, check that you have the latest version of File Explorer that was included in the September 26, 2023 update, 22H2.  Go to Start, search for Update and apply any update if needed.
