Default How to hide preview strip in gallery?

On my s4 running stock rooted mdk, I use the native gallery app to view photos and am always annoyed by the preview strip of thumbnails obscuring the bottom of the frame when viewing a single picture full screen. I'm not sure how this got activated, but I can find no way to turn it off, and searches haven't helped. Anyone have a solution?

Doesn't work. I can tap a thumbnail and navigate to that picture, or double tap the current one to zoom in. But single tap, or tap-and-hold, does nothing, not on my S4, anyway. I tried just about everything that seemed intuitive before posting this question.

Not sure if it'd work but maybe try clearing data on Gallery?

Must be a problem with your setup. The strip will go away on its own after a few seconds or if you tap the screen. Pretty sure there is no setting for this.

Data wipe and reboot availed nothing, but good suggestion, and thanks for confirming that this is abnormal behavior. I haven't really messed with the system apart from rooting MDK and freezing the OTA processes so I don't lose my unlocked bootloader...so I'm not sure what I did that would've messed up the gallery. But if I finally get round to installing a 4.4.x ROM, perhaps the problem will go away.
