Went to add a photo to a contact and the gallery is gone. Didn't have this issue earlier. The gallery is still on the phone, but now it won't come up to add a photo to a contact. All that shows up is a folder called Files. HELP?

Go to Apps > All > Files

Select it and scroll down to "Launch By Default" and touch "Clear defaults"

Do the same for Gallery and Phone if anything is set as a default.
