How To Disable The New Photo Viewer on Facebook

You Are Here

Facebook recently rolled out the new photo viewer which also called “Theater Mode” for all the users. This new Facebook photo viewer uses popup slideshow and opens in an overlay layer. But this latest update from Facebook has come under a lot of fire because many users found it annoying and this new Theater Mode photo viewer for Facebook has not found universal love.

So I am here with the 2 simplest tricks to get rid of it.

1. By deleting “&theater”

To disable the new Photo Viewer simply go to the address bar of the browser. At the end of the address, there is &theater – delete it. The page will reload the image in the old photo viewer and from there you can click next and back for each picture and it’ll stay in the old viewer, you only have to do this each time the new photo viewer displays then it will stay at the old viewer until you click off the page.

2. Using F5 key

All you have to do is to simply press F5 button and then the photo should load again in the old Photo Viewer instead of the new one and after this you will see the rest of the photos in the album in the old Photo Viewer.

So friends use any tricks from the above, the end result is the same. We get rid of the all new photo viewer. You can also leave your feedback towards the new photo viewer in the bottom left corner of the new photo viewer where it says “Give feature feedback”.
