  • I created an album in OneDrive from a folder that was sorted by filename. When I initially viewed the album, the first picture was first to start the slide show. NOW, the pictures sequence is the same but the slideshow starts in the middle of the set of photos. I cannot seem to re-order them WITHIN the album itself. Any ideas? This is just backward and makes the whole album thing unusable imho
