  2. Windows 10 Viewing photos by month & year

    I have just upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 and wondered if anyone can help me with a query please ?

    In Windows 7 I had all my photos of the grandchildren in one folder called 'Freddie & Anna' that was set up as follows:

    • There were no sub folders for months/years within the 'Freddie & Anna' folder.
    • When I clicked on the folder 'Freddie & Anna' the system displayed month & year 'icons' so that I could select the photos I wanted to view by clicking on the appropriate month & year 'icon'.
    • If my memory is correct I did this by using 'Arrange by' within the 'Freddie & Anna' folder.

    I have set up the following folder structure in Windows 10:

    and all the photos of my grandchildren are in the folder 'Freddie & Anna'.

    There are no sub folders for months/years within the 'Freddie & Anna' folder.

    When I click on the folder 'Freddie & Anna' I want my system to do what it did in Windows 7 and display the month & year icons but it does what I don't want and displays all the photos and groups them under the headings 'Earlier This Week', 'Last Week', 'Earlier This Month', Earlier This Year', and 'A Long Time Ago'. The system does this very slowly.

    In Windows 7 the system was pretty quick to display the month & year 'icons' and then to display the appropriate photos if I clicked on one of the month & year 'icons'.

    I would like to set up my folders/photos in Windows 10 so they are displayed as my system did in Windows 7.

    Can anyone help me to do this please?

  3. Photos app dates

    In the windows photo app is there a way to manually change the dates of photos imported? Changing the date settings on devices does not help, all the photos I import are listed with wrong dates by several years. Very frustrating!

    I understand that the device I am importing photos from is probably to blame for the incorrect date, what I am looking for is a way to correct this manually from within the app itself.

    My photo collection is now chaos and I am forced to keep a mud map on paper of when the photos were actually taken, in the hope of finding a way to correct this here.

    Please help! thanks.

    View Photos by Month

    Sorted, You can now only do it through Windows photos app. When you first click on it all your photos come up in date order, if you then click on the date for the latest photos the screen will then list all of the months that you have photos. Thanks for
    suggestions and hope this helps anyone with the same problem.
