Windows 7: Photo viewing

26 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 x64
Photo viewing

Using W7 and Office 2007. I have a folder of dozens of photos in Photo Library, which I want to open and view all together next to each other all the way down the screen and then continue viewing by scrolling.
What I get is the photos grouped according to when they were added to the folder.
There are 21 added 'Earlier this year' and some more 'A long time ago' and so on. This wastes space.
I would ask 'Help' for help but I don't know how to express this question.

Hiya pal and welcome to the forums

If I understand your question correctly, have you maybe not got your "view" "arrange by" set to "month" ..... also look at the "group by" and "sort by" options

Irfanview is pretty good too.

IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

And, of course, there's Windows 7's own Photo Viewer.

If you're using MS Office you have a GREAT photo gallery right on your system: Microsoft Office Picture Manager! MS Picture Manager is not only an easy way to access and view all of your photos, it's also a great photo editing app! Try it, I think you'll really like it. I've made it my default all-purpose photo (and other images) viewer and editor.

Thanks for the help; all it needed was a light dab on the 'arr by/folder' buttons and problem solved - obvious, innit?
Many thanks

Photo Fuse in Photo Gallery stopped working
