  1. Photo app on desktop shows photos in random order


    I am aware how to sort images by date, date modified, name, size etc in folders. When I'm on desktop and I'm scrolling through the images, the images appear at random, not in the order in which they are placed. Technicians tried updating patches. resetting and a few other tricks but nothing is fixing this chronological order problem. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    :)

    How to use photos app to show in random order?


    I am not sure you can get what you want without using a fancy 3rd party program which I am not aware of, or doing registry tweak which like you, I am hesitant to do.
    By default, files are listed either numerically or alphabetically.
    The Photo app has no choice but to show them in the order they are listed.

    Photo Viewer does not show photos in sorted order


    That's also covered in the link I posted. If you change the sort order of a folder in Windows File Explorer and then open one of the photos with Windows Photo Viewer, it will then display the photos from that folder by that order as you scroll though them.

    You can also type *.jpg in the Windows File Explorer search box to just show jpg files in Windows Photo Viewer for that folder for example.

    I have a folder with images and like to click through them using the photos app. I don't use slideshow just the arrow keys. I like it but want it to be in random order, is there a way to do this? if not is there another similar program I could get thats free?
