Windows 11 File Explorer Gallery View

Last week, Microsoft released Windows 11 Preview Build 23435 to Dev Channel Insiders. This new build came with a brand new feature called Gallery in File Explorer. The new Gallery feature will make it easy to access your photo collection from Windows 11 File Explorer. The content shown in Gallery is the same as the All Photos view in the Windows 11’s native Photos app.

The new Gallery view is optimized for accessing your most recently taken photos. Also, you can select which folders are shown in Gallery through the Collection dropdown. You can also add subfolders of existing sources to filter to a subset of your content. Another neat feature is that Gallery also works from the file picking dialog. So, it will be available whenever you need it.

Please note that this feature is not enabled for all Insiders. Microsoft has started the roll out now, based on the feedback, Microsoft will push it out to everyone.
