    Windows 10 File Explorer or Photo Viewer Possible Bug


    I have folders full of photos. Some cameras start the filenames with the date, some with IMG_, some with IMG-, etc.


    To get the latest ones sorted at the top of the list in File Explorer, I insert the Date Taken column in the column list and sort by that.


    So looking at the files in File Explorer in Details view, I sort by Date Taken. In the list all looks correct.


    Then I double-click on the first photo and it opens with the built-in Photos application.


    When I look at the photos in a C: drive folder, they appear in order.


    When I sort the files with File Explorer by Date Taken on my Android 9 phone, imagine my surprise when the pics have been sorted and displayed by months, even though they are shown in proper date order in File Explorer. So, first the August 2019 photos appear, then the August 2018, then the August 2017, etc, before the July 2019 pics come up.


    Is it the Photos program, or its interaction with the File Explorer, or the translation from Android? It used to be that the Photos application would display in whatever order the File Explorer organized them. Now it does not.


    Can this be addressed? Is there a setting in File Explorer or Photos that will change the sorting format?


    Thanks.

    :)

    How to get rid of raw file support in windows photo viewer?



    Windows 10 File Explorer or Photo Viewer Possible Bug [​IMG]


    I have downloaded this, and it did not work; photo viewer is not in the list of programs in Open With or Default App. I used option 2 step 3, followed by step 5 to 9.

  3. windows photo viewer display order not as file explorer

    Thank you for replying Amarjeet_Paul, the checks you suggested did not find any problems, as expected.

    Method 1: Did not find any problems.

    Method 2:"Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

    With respect, I don't think you understood my request.

    I would like Windows Photo Viewer to display images in date order NOT in name order.

    Window Photo Viewer should be displaying in the same order as is set in the file explorer.

    This is possible in Vista (on my old desktop) and was possible in Windows 8.1 (as I remember).

    Is there a known fix for this?, possibly a registry tweak but preferably an obscure setting change.

    Probably a Windows 10 bug that will never be fixed.

    If you do not know please just say that. Thank you for replying regardless.

    Windows 10 File Explorer or Photo Viewer Possible Bug

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
