The layout in gallery keeps changing if I click in the wrong place. See screenshot. I don't want the side bar of albums showing. I just want to open an album and view its thumbnails.

But I pressed or moved something on the screen and the sidebar pops up again.

How do I get rid of it? It's driving me mad...!

@bekkalink: If you would like to get rid of the side bar in your Gallery, simply swipe to the left anywhere on the screen. To enable the side bar, swipe to the right. I hope this helps.

How do we get the sidebar to go away permanently, in previous versions of the gallery when you slid it away, closed and reopened the app the gallery would save the layout without the side panel. Now it returns every time you reopen it and it's super redundant to see your album info in the thumbnails and in the side bat all the time

Most of my images have gone from the gallery app. Luckily if I've saved them to the Google photos app they still appear.

This is so useless and no sense. You cant choose multiple files (and do whatever you want with them), if you choose 3 pictures and after that you want to add (to your email or whatever) more pictures from the past, so you need to choose 3 swipe down and choose another...you alwas get that sh***y grpup thing like everyone shows.

I have the new S22 Ultra...any idea on how to get the side panel back in gallery? I had it on my Note+, but can't figure it out on the new phone

@Eccs: The side bar is only available when selecting an album from the Albums tab. With this in mind, open an album, then swipe to the right to bring up the side bar, which displays any other albums you may have.
