As the topic states. When I rename a folder containing photos, the slideshow no longer works, and you can no longer arrow to the next image.

Another bug, or do I need to change something else?

Thanks!

You'll have to re-choose the folder for the slideshow. By renaming the folder , you've broken the executable path.

Even if I completely exit the folder, it still doesn't work, nor can I arrow to the next image. I even restarted my computer, and that doesn't help either..

You'll have to explain in detail what app/program or process you are trying to invoke in order to execute this slideshow.
I'm not fully understanding how you are going about it.

Sorry for not explaining it very well, and thank you for helping..

So I go to the folder containing a group of photos. I double click on the first photo and can mouse over to the right or left edge where an arrow appears that I can click on to advance to the next photo. I can also use the right or left arrow key. I can also right click on the photo and am presented with a 'slideshow' option. When I renamed the folder the arrows were gone as was using the arrow keys to advance to the next photo. When I selected the 'slideshow' option, it just repeats the same photo never advancing to the next.

Thanks again for your assistance..

Yes, I'm using whichever stock app allows me to view a photo when I double click it.
