Does anyone know how to turn off the "Recent" album in the updated Gallery that happened with Android 13? The latest version of Gallery has taken liberties with all the albums that I created. I've turned off the merged albums feature. The application makes me choose "View All" instead of showing me all of my albums each time that I open the app. We all use our phones differently and if you add these "helpful" features, it would be nice to be able to turn off the ones that are not needed. It is not good if Gallery starts acting like an iPhone and deciding these things and won't let us use it the way we want. Frustrating.
I see the "view all" on yours. Recent items isn't showing. They weren't there with Android 12. I have to select view all to see my camera folder. It only shows when I select view all. My gallery is 14.0.00.32
I just got the update today. The only setting I found to hide "recent" and "favorite" albums is by going into gallery settings (three line menu at the bottom, select settings). Once there, switch the "Select Albums to Show" option off. It made those go away for me
Seems unfixable. If someone put a weapon to my head to find a specific photo in 2 minutes the prognosis doesn't look good.
