Windows 7: Windows Photo Viewer, too many instances

Windows Photo Viewer, too many instances

Hello all!

I recently bought a new computer with Windows 7. I am used to XP's picture and fax viewer where when you are viewing a photo and click on a new one, it opens in the same window.

With Windows 7 Photo Viewer, everytime you click to a new photo it opens a new window, even if you click the same photo. Before I know it I have 20 photo viewers open.

I can't find a preference to always open the next photo in the same window. I found the same question posted elsewhere on the web but nobody had an answer.

Thanks

I am in the group with no solution. My recommendation is a third part viewer that has more control.

Seems that all of these choices have far more features than the average person needs to just view a photo. I use Photoshop for all of my editing but just want something like photo viewer that pops the photo up on the screen immediately when you double click a photo icon.

I'm sure there are many more options than the 10 listed. I'll have to do some searching.

Thanks for the reply.
