    thanks

  • vishal

    i used windows 8.1……… u cant see any “view picture” option.

  • http://www.infocurse.com Ayan

    Bluestack has nothing to do with your windows in this case. Check the version of your Bluestacks. You get the option of “view picture” after clicking (not a long press) on the pic. Also, make sure that you have Whatsapp installed in your Bluestacks or else it won’t show it.

  • krishna

    i didnt get the option view picture. instead i got gallery,astro image viewer… plz help

  • http://www.infocurse.com Ayan

    No problem, Krishna. I guess you have older version of Bluestacks. Click on gallery and find the appropriate options. If you are not able to find it then tell me, I will tell you an alternate method to change whatsapp profile pic on Bluestacks.

  • Raheem

    sir, i didn`t get the option view picture in bluestacks to put pic as profile pivture in whats app ……please any help me for that??????

    • http://www.infocurse.com Ayan

      You get the option of “view picture” by clicking on the pic (not a long press click). Though, many people are going through the same problem, so I will tell you an alternate method.
      1. Copy the pic (by long press and select Copy).
      2. Go to sd card>>Whatsapp>>Media>>Whatsapp Images (Most probably this will be the third folder). Paste the image here. The pic will be saved in Whatsapp database.
      4. Now, open Whatsapp in Bluestacks. Change profile picture from the internal option of Whatsapp. The pic is saved in the database of your Whatsapp client, so you can choose the desired pic now.

    hello ayan!
    my all chat history has been deleted by some error and after that it shows the option to restore or don’t restore but i selected don’t restore by mistake..
    now what?
    how to restore again all history????

    • http://www.infocurse.com Ayan

      Hello Murtaza,
      It is possible to restore your Chat. Whatsapp automatically creates a backup of your last 7 chat history. Uninstall and reinstall whatsapp to restore that chat history backup. When you will reopen WhatsApp, you will be asked if you want to restore a chat history backup that was found. Choose yes.
