Hi @Flamegrilled41 

 

Are you referring to the Albums in your Gallery ?

Is your Gallery updated to the latest version available on your phone.

If so are you using the Samsung Gallery ?

On mine I open up my Galley and then for example.

  • Choose the Camera option where pictures go when I take one.
  • Long press on a picture.
  • Press More at the bottom of the page.
  • Choose Move to Album.
  • Tap on Create in the top right hand corner.
  • A pop up box then let's me create a name for the new album.

In regards to changing an Albums name in the Samsung Gallery.

  • Long hold on one of the lists in the gallery.
  • Press More in the bottom right corner corner.
  • A pop up appears with various options with one of them saying Rename.

If you've tried the above then put the phone in Safe Mode … Put the phone in Safe Mode which disables your downloaded app's but let's your stock app's keep working. If the issues stop then this highlights a downloaded app as the possible issue. Come out of Safe Mode and start deleting your most recent downloaded app's one at a time until it stops. https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/how-to-start-my-galaxy-device-in-safe-mode/ 

If no apps are causing this then you may need to visit a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre.


Current Phone > Samsung Z Fold³ 5G.

@Flamegrilled41 Hi, if you have Gallery sync, activated with One Drive, make sure you are logged into One Drive.
