Windows 7: Windows picture viewer will only view alphabetically

Windows picture viewer will only view alphabetically

I've been having this issue since I installed windows 7. Before on XP, all I had to do was arrange a folder by date, or size or whatever then open up an image in the viewer, and the images could be viewed in the order I set.

However since I got windows 7, I've been able to re-arrange the images in the folder just fine, but after that, no matter what photoviewer I use, they will only open alphabetically..

I have no idea why this is happening.

thanks

try this see if it makes a difference,
create a system restore point before you do in case you want to revert.

Maybe you could name the files something like *(1) example.jpg *? Not what you're looking for I know, but might take care of the problem. (changing the numeral for each image in the order you want them)

I had considered that, but I don't even remember the order. I'd have to go through thousands of pictures :/
I'm wondering if it's a problem with the structure of folders and going from XP to 7 makes the thing incompatible

windows picture viewer is pretty ****ty. You can't scroll up and down on images if you want the image to display in its actual size. Plus, you can't have it so the image is its real size by default so you're constantly hitting the "resize" button. Plus it doesn't display the animations on...
