  You recently sent me an email announcing episde179.

You showed in the email how to sort albums alphabetically:


  • Open Google Photos
  • Tap the Albums button
  • Just above your albums, you should see an up/down arrow tap that
  • You should see the choice of
    • Most recent photo
    • Last Modified
    • Album Title
  • Choose Album title and your albums will now be sorted alphabetically

I am on a windows 10 desktop and when I tap the album button, there is no up/down button.  Obviously, without the button I can not complete my task.

   Any ideas on how to get that up/down arrow?

Love your site.

Yeah, no … that feature is only on the mobile devices, not on the computer. Not yet anyway.

Glad you love the site! Thanks. Here’s a link where you can leave a review for us if you’d like:
