Windows 7: Windows Photo Viewer Problem.

Windows Photo Viewer Problem.

Alright I'm having a problem with Windows Photo Viewer, for some reason when I view photos that are located in a folder I can't switch in between them:

Basically that's how it looks and I can't switch through pictures, but when I view photos located directly in "Pictures" library I can switch through them, anyone know why? Dunno what caused this.

What is the format of those pictures? (jpg, png, etc.) What is the initial folder?

They are either .jpg or .png and what do you mean by "initial folder" ? All folders are located in "Pictures" library.

actually the library is a collection of shorcuts from the actual/initial folders. this way if you have three external hardrives you can have a pictures folder on each of them but they will/can all show in the library.

Mine works fine. I don't know if this is the problem but photo viewer wont skip to other folders containing photo's and if you can't switch between anything the most likely cause I would think is that there are no other pictures contained in the folder except for one picture, which would be ridiculous since I would think that you had more than one..

C:\Users\Jorge\Pictures is where they are at.

@seth500 Yeah, there is more than 1 picture in each folder so that's not my problem.
