  1. Is there a way to "skip" *.arw files when viewing in Windows Photo Viewer?


    I'm trying to skip *.arw files in Windows Photo Viewer since I shoot in RAW and JPG on my camera. The "Linked duplicates" function doesn't work for ARW files, so I was wondering if there is something I can do to skip RAW/ARW files since they take a couple seconds to load and scrolling through my images quickly is basically unusable.

    :)

  2. Can not view arw file on Windows 10

    Hi Marktrivett,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    Let me help you to fix the issue.

    To understand the issue better, please provide us more information.


    • What is the make and model of the computer?

    • What exactly happen when you to try to view the ARW file?

    • Which application are you using to view the ARW file?
    The ARW file extension stands for "Sony Alpha Raw", and is therefore a Sony RAW Image file. To open an ARW file double-click on the file and let your PC decide which default application should open the file. The photos program that comes pre-installed
    with Microsoft Windows is able to open ARW files. If no program opens the ARW file then you probably don't have an application installed that can view ARW files. You can also try installing third party software to view the ARW file.

    Disclaimer: Using Third Party Software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Third
    Party Software can be solved. Using Third Party Software is at your own risk.

    Hope it helps. If you need further assistance with Windows, let us know and will be glad to help.

  3. Can not view arw file on Windows 10

    So....back to the original poster's question...what software do I use to open these Sony ARW files? I have Windows 10 on an HP Pavilion laptop. I have not downloaded any extra software to this laptop. Microsoft cannot open this file with 1) "Photos", 2)
    "Windows Media Player", and 3) "Windows Photo Viewer." Does anyone have any suggestions as to what Microsoft app I can use to open the ARW files? I can open them with my iPhone.

  4. Is there a way to "skip" *.arw files when viewing in Windows Photo Viewer?

    WIndows 10 Photo Viewer RAW Camera Files

    I recently bought a new Sony Mirrorless Camera that has .ARW RAW photo files. Windows 10 Photo viewer says "It looks like we don't support this file format" when I try to open them.

    The strange thing is before I bought this new camera, I used a different Sony Mirrorless Camera that had the same .ARW photo files and it worked just fine.

    More details:

    Old camera: Sony a6000 (RAW files opened in photo viewer)

    New Camera: Sony A7ii (RAW files won't open in photo viewer)

    Thanks!
