    Windows 10 File Manager 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 Manager, I insert the Date Taken column in the column list and sort by that.


    So looking at the files in File Manager 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 Files Manager 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 Manager. 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 Manager, or the translation from Android? It used to be that the Photos application would display in whatever order the file manager organized them. Now it does not.


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


    Thanks.

    :)

    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.

    Hi,

    There are several reasons why this issue occurs, such as corrupted system file or your graphic driver needs to be updated. To isolate your issues about viewing photos in
    Windows Photo Viewer, we just have a few questions:

    • Is the issue the same with a different image file format?
    • Have you tried using the Photo app to check if the issue is the same?
    • Is the issue only occurs with the photos that were captured using your DSLR camera?
    • Have you tried downloading photos online and check if the issue is the same?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    In the meantime, to troubleshoot your issue in using the Windows Photo Viewer, we suggest that you run the Windows apps troubleshooter. To do so, click on this
    link. If the issue still persists, we recommend that you update your graphic driver. To do this, we suggest that you follow the steps provided on this
