Windows pictures viewer displays the wrong image in fullscreen

Hello everybody !

Since 2 days, when I open a picture with the windows 7 picture viewver, it displays the good picture, but when I go fullscreen (F11), the picture displayed is different !!! (another picture from the same folder !).
Then if I quit the fullscreen mode, the picture is the good one again. But if I hit F11 agin, then the picture displayed is again different from the "first wrongly displayed..."

I haven't found anything on this problem on the internet.

Thanks in advance for your help ! I'm becoming mad !

Ah, that is the default behavior!

F11 runs the Picture Viewer in slide show mode. See the center button in the controls at the bottom? Hover your mouse over it and see the tool tip: "Play slide show (F11)".

Yes but the slide show should start with the picture you chose displayed in full screen... But in my case, the picture displayed in full screen is different from the one I open.... Strange !

I finally solved the problem : I clicked by mistake on "random play" during the slideshow, that's why the photo displayed in fullscreen was different from the one I opened...

Thanks everyone !
