Windows 7: Windows 7 keeps opening pictures alphabetically

win 7 inages date order

Win 7 Ahhhhg!

Wish they had stayed with XP.
To sort images in DATE order select 'Content Created' Not the obvious 'date created' box. If you have just made the images date order will work, but if the images were transferred from a later date, or another drive later you must use 'content created'. I agree that this is dumb and gets dumber as then you will need to 'Sort' your folder(s) of images into 'Content Created'. This all has to be done to each folder unless some genius has a fix. As a photographer, I have thouseands of folders and sub folder to change.
I hate the folder structure and other things with win 7, but my camera refuses to work with XP.
Hope this makes a tedius life easier.
