Photo in FileOpenPicker Disappear


  • In the first version of Windows 8, the Photo was displayed in FileOpenPicker. New upgrade might have removed this option. So I can not open a picture file from SkyDrive and Facebook from FileOpenPicker. How can I do this in new edition?

  • Hi Charlie,

    Your app cannot control what is shown in the FileOpenPicker. What shows is determined by the built in areas and by what other extension apps are installed on the system.

  • I found the solution. I need to tap the title Files to show the Photos contract. 

    The Files does not look like a button so I think most users will not try to tap it.

    This is a UI design problem of Windows 8.
