Windows 7: Using Windows XP "Pictures ans Fax Viewer" in windows 7

01 May 2015   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Well mostly I use Windows Photo Viewer but when I need more (and better) options I use Wildbit Image Viewer. I'd suggest trying the portable version. You can indeed arange by "modified" and a whole lot more. Just right click on "Name" and choose sorting options. As for the other options and settings there are too many to explain but I'll mention that it's possible to create your own thumbnail cache and load it for fast operation.

There are also lots of view settings to suit your needs.

It sounds like you know what you're doing with photo viewer / editor types of software but if you have any questions on Wildbit (if you test it) - I'll try to help.

Okaaaaaaaaay, I guess I'll have to start another thread to find out how to get the photo viewer to play the slideshow in the actual order of the photos.

Re: Slide Show problems.

I removed the slide show option from the navigation pane but get the option to start playing a slide show in Windows Photo Viewer. Ignore the look of it on my machine as I made it Metro Style but it's still Windows Photo Viewer.

Once it starts there's a right click option to choose "shuffle" or "loop". Trythe loop option. On my machine it plays in the same order as the images are ordered in an explorer window.

The only other thing I can think of is perhaps issues with "Folder Template Discovery" or "Auto Arrange" or changing the template for the folder. On my machine all folders are set to "General Items" and "Folder Template Discovery" is switched off.

I don't experience the problem that you are having! :)

Folder name "Pictures" varies in different parts of Windows Explorer
Hello, I have a folder I named "Latest Pictures" in my extra (non-OS) SSD drive. Confusingly, in some places it is just called "Pictures". I cannot recall its history, so it may have begun as that name. Since it is on a drive that was empty when I got the PC I am assuming it is not a system...
