Not sure why, but, when I select more than one image the preview icon is dimmed. Can you offer a suggestion?

cup of coffee and a google gooru video in the morning- very civilised.

I have a question on the new feature of preview in drive. Can you delete unwanted photos in preview mode or do you have to remember the title and go back to the menu and then delete?

Please, please, please, a tip to disable the preview ! Is there something somewhere to disable this feature ?

I share HD video files and my users watch it in SD because they watch the preview instead of opening the actual file.
It would be so much easier to just disable the preview instead of having to answer to all the users saying “i can’t watch it in HD” or “Too bad you don’t have better quality video”….

The ability to delete while in preview mode would be very useful
