How to hide Screenshot folder in Gallery

    I have a .nomedia file in the folder. Any file in the folder previous to adding it is hidden, but new screenshots are visible in the gallery. I can make these files hidden by renaming them, but would like to skip this procedure entirely. Hiding the folder does no good, as any new screenshots are added to a new folder which is visible. How can I make it so that any new screenshots that are taken are hidden in the gallery, just like the older/renamed files?

    I would prefer to do this without using any apps (other than a file explorer), if possible.

    There is an issue with the S8 and how it works with the .nomedia flag. As you have found out it works inconsistently, myself and Unforgiven have spent way too long trying to find a fix. There is none sadly, it's a fault with the phones software.

    I don't think you will get any solution without an app. You have to download some app from the app store for this problem.
