Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order

Question: Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order

The Windows Photo Viewer will not display photos in the order they are sorted by Windows Explorer.
This is not referring to the slide show feature, just the forward and back arrows.
The only order pictures can be viewed is by name despite Windows Explorer being set at view by date, ascending.
I have repaired Microsoft Live Essentials, uninstalled and reinstalled but the issue remains.
This is also not an issue with photo tags or photo names.
Windows Explorer sorts as selected but click a picture in the middle to view, click the forward arrow and instead of the next date picture being viewed, the next name picture is viewed.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Answer: Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order

Hi!

I upgraded to Windows 10 recently as well, I have the same problem and I also have a solution. However, I do not know, if it is ideal. :-)

What is obviously missing is an entry in the registry called DropTarget. This entry tells Windows Photo Viewer to display the images in the sorting order of the folder Photo Viewer got called from.

Non-solution:
I saw that at least in my registry there is a DropTarget defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget. From the name of the key and from reading the docs this looks as if it would be applied to all calls to this program, but -if that actually is the case- for me this entry does not work. It has been there (at least) after my Windows 10 upgrade, also the "Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" seems to be fine, but it does not do the job.

Solution:
For me, this problem was present for jpg and png files, but not for bmp, dib, gif, jfif and what else can be opened with Windows Photo Viewer. To fix this, I have added the following to the Windows Registry:


Code:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell\open\DropTarget]
"Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\pngfile\shell\open\DropTarget]
"Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}"

After you added that to the registry, rightclick a jpg file, select "Open with", choose Windows Photo Viewer and click "Always open with this app". This step is not intended to actually change the program you are using (actually the program stays the same), but it makes Windows reload the file associations.

If afterwards you open a jpg or a png file, the sorting order should be the same as it was in your folder - at least it was for me.

Final thoughts:
I would be happy, if I got it working using the key Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget I mentioned above, but that is only a technical detail. Fact is: With the jpegfile and pngfile DropTarget posted above it's working!

Hi,

I usually have both .jpg and .nef files on my SD cards when reading them into the pc. In win8, I could setup the folder to be sorted by file type, and then browse the .jpg files to check focus/colors. Now, when I group the folder into .jpg and .nef files and check the files using Windows Photo Viewer (not the Photos app), it seems the viewer is not taking into account the sorting I choose and just shows jpg then nex then jpg etc.

Any way to solve this?

Also, in the past when I checked the properties of a files and clicked on the 'detail' tab, the next time I checked the properties of a file, it automatically went to the 'detail' tab again. Now it always seems to go back to the first tab of the properties (annoying.

I come across this while trying to play pictures in a slide show or burn pictures to a DVD. I renamed the picture in the order I would like to see them to 1, 2, 3,...200 etc. They will only be played in a slide show in the correct order with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.  Other softwares like Irfan view or Nero will show them in a different order, like 1, 10, 100, 2, or some wierd order.  Any insight or solution to this problem from anyone?

Answer:Different Sorting Order of pictures

Alphabetically, 10, comes before 2 - because 1 is before 2 in the ASCII character set.  The latest versions of Windows fudge this a little by trying to figure out what you mean when filenames contain numbers.  If you want it to work everywhere, pad your numbers with zeroes like this:001002010115etc.

Answer:Windows photo Gallery open order

Hi

Not that I've ever heard of, but you CAN change the order in which your pictures show in the folder...
If you say "The Order I took them", then they should have a "Created on" date and you can sort them by that. Play with some of the "Sort by" and "Group by" settings, and/or the "Date Taken" one, or another option is to add Tags to the photos and then you can sort them as you please according to how you tag them.

Answer:when sorting pictures they automatically go in 'descending order'

Clicking the column header should reverse them. Also, in View - sort by - you have the option to choose Ascending or descending, but apparently only in 'Details' not 'icons' Why that should be I have no idea.

Instead History will show Recents Pages by X pages (Recent FIFO method), it shows by "Today".

Every time when it is 00:00 (midnight), it resets all the history I've had.

I want to change it to "View By Order Visited" or "View By Order Visited for couple days", instead of "View By Order Visited Today" (Browsing History displays only for one day), So that If it pass midnight - I could still see the last links.

Hi,I've an approved RMA for full refund for an X230 that I'd purchased from Depot. The restocking fee was waived as I'd ordered another X230 (better EPP deal).I shipped back the unopened X230 and Lenovo acknowledged the receipt of the laptop on Feb 5. And since then there has been no update on my refund. I was told it would take 6 business days for the refund to be posted back to my account.Now it's over 2 weeks and when I contacted post sales support - this is the reply I got from them: *************Hi,We regret to inform you that i am unable to get any information on this order, I am still working on your order. Once we get the information on the refund i will keep you updated on the same For further assistance please feel free to email me back and i will be glad to assist you Regards *************So what are my options now. An answer like "i am unable to get any information on this order" from customer care themselves doesn't really inspire confidence with Lenovo. The second X230 that I'd ordered, has issues with the IPS display having a yellow tint and the touchpad being super jumpy.

I was trying to log into a work from home website. They had specified that I use Internet Explorer but I couldn't log in until I had added that website to IE's compatibility view setting. Then it worked O.K.
My question is, WHY????

Answer:Had to use Compatibility View in order to use a website.

Hi there

Probably because the site was still using FLASH. There are a lot of new ways (and more secure too) of displaying web sites, as well as the sites themselves using different coding techniques.

A lot of older sites or sites developed using earlier coding standards and programs won't display properly on IE11 but will when using Compatibility mode as this mode will still read and execute older coding and protocols.

Also note that some sites like Banks etc which might be capable of running the new software (No Flash, HTML 5, CSS etc) might also check for specific browser versions -- IE11 might not yet be added to their list even though the site has been updated. Running in compatibility mode will "poodlefake" the site as well into thinking you are running IE10.

Any Furniture restorers or visitors to antique auction rooms will understand the expression "Poodlefake". !!!!

"Seemples......".

Cheers
jimbo.

Hi! A few weeks ago I bought a new Acer netbook with Windows 7 Starter on it, after six years of using, and getting very comfortable with, XP. Some things I like, some things I don't, but I figure I should get used to the coming thing, since XP won't be around forever.

There is one thing (at the moment) that I can't figure out in Win 7 though. In XP all my windows that are opened in detail view first have the file name, then the file size right next to it. In Win 7, all the detail windows default to having the file size column over on the far right, where it's hard to see and does me no good at all. I can drag the file size column over to where I want it, of course, but I have hundreds of folders and would not like to have to do this for all of them manually. I also would prefer to have all new folders default to having the file size right next to the file name.

Is there any way I can get Starter to change the column order for all the folders at once, as well as make it the default for new ones I create?

Thank you.

You can no longer sort the contents of a file listing in Windows Explorer, keeping a selection of files made in the previous sort order.
If this is a bug I would like to know, than I will report it appropriately, otherwise - if it is "by design" - I would like an explanation, why this function was removed.
As I see it, sorting has to be possible with the selection of files kept intact.
Searching the net I find many people being upset that this is not possible in Windows 7. I used it all the time at work, on my XP machine. I used to select all dll-files in a certain folder, and then sort by "Date modified", which resulted in a
list of files sorted by date, and with the appropriate files selected. This was an easy way to find out which dll files had changed last in our development environment - just sorting by date makes a lot of other files, such as log files and debug files appear
in between the dll files.

I have had issues viewing photos since upgrading to Windows 7. The message I was getting in Photoviewer was:cannot view photos in photo viewer because you do not have correct permissions. I followed the instructions in a 2007 string from TheOutcaste and ran the command: icacls *.* /reset /T /C in the folder where my photos was stored. This made it possible for me to see approximately 80 to 90 % of my photos which is GREAT. However, I still have a fairly large number of photos which are not accessible unless I go through the tedious manual task of assigning myself as the owner. I've run the command again and can see that on those photos which cannot be seen that there is a notation that access was denied. Any additional ideas on what I might be able to do in order to "release" these photos in mass...and not manually one at at time?? Thank you in advance. skyglover

BEWARE ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS. VISTA RUINS PHOTOS.​
We bought a new system that runs Vista. Lucky us. We are trying to copy year’s worth of photos onto new system. Photos are ruined as Vista displays them in thumbnail view. Make sure you have a back-up because once your photos are loaded onto Vista they are ruined. All photos are jpg files taken with several different cameras. ​
Here are several samples using the Vista Photo Gallery Viewer​


I have been on the telephone with Microsoft technical support for hours trying to resolve this issue. We have run a system scan and it came out clean. We do not have a virus. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a solution?? HELP

I have Vista Home Premium with Microsoft Photo Gallery on my Dell Inspriron 1721 laptop. I?m using a machine to transfer slides to a SD card then uploading them to Photo Gallery. Photos transfer Ok except the order of the photo gets scrambled somehow during upload. In other words, the photos on the SD card are in chronologically order but after uploading, when I view them in Photo Galley, the order is all mixed up. I know you can manual move them around but it?s hard to be sure of the original order and it is very time consuming when you have hundreds of photos. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to fix them. FYI I would call myself a novice user of Photo Gallery.

Answer:Uploading photos from a SD memory card into Photo Gallery scrambles order of photos

Will the Photo Gallery sort by name? You could prefix the photo names with numerical sequence. A utility like
Introduction - Bulk Rename Utility will do it easily. It's free.

Edit: if that looks too busy, the multi-renamer in FreeCommander is a bit simpler to use. [c] before the name prepends a number starting at what you select and incrementing by what you choose. Just press F2 when in the folder.

I have a 500Gb NAS drive which I've nearly filled and need to clear out.
I'd like to be able to just look down the (400+?) folders and see their size, and sort the folders in size order so I can find and attack the largest first.
Windows doesn't seem to have a way of showing the folder size in list form (rather than hovering over each one in turn) or sorting them (largest to smallest).
I've just had a quick look on this site for a (free) utility which does this, and found ExplorerXP (but can't download and check for a few hours).
Is this the best (free) tool for this job, or can anyone recommend another?

(For info, I've also seen something called FolderSize, but it isn't hosted here and the page on Sourceforge suggested it slows the machine and crashes every once in a while, so I've ruled that out)

Many thanks.

Dear MS support, 
I have the following situation and really appreciate if you can provide any guidelines. I'm working on a windows machine with two adapters. Will try to summarize it here :
1- NIC#1 has ipv4 only enabled and it has one dns server. Plus a default domain name of test.com.
2- NIC#2 has both ipv4 and ipv6 enabled. Plus a default domain name of test.com. [there are a valid ipv6 dns server too].
3- All the interfaces has the following dns suffixes enabled :
hyari1.com
hyari2.com

Problem
=====

When i try to resolve a name without a domain. I get the following behavior :
1- First i see an ipv4 dns query on NIC#1 to the name appended with the domain test.com and i get no such name for that one which is expected.
2- Instead of trying the next dns suffixes on that interface i see that the dns resolver jumps to the ipv6 dns server on NIC#2 . And here is my Problem, why it didn't continue to resolve all the suffixes on NIC#1 .

Please notice that in the binding order. NIC#1 appears before NIC#2.  

is this expected and why ?

Alt + Tab order runs in order of most recently used (MRU) to least recent.  I want to change this order to a static order that I opened each program.

Amazon has Windows 7 on Pre order as you may know. I have already pre ordered the Pro version for ?89 (price went up now) but today i saw this:

"Customers who buy an eligible copy of Windows Vista from Amazon.co.uk between 26th June and 15th October 2009 [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_84386313_1?ie=UTF8&docId=1000321063&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=special-node-offers-3&pf_rd_r=1ZMDJ1T9KQJ22XM47DXW&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=470482053&pf_rd_i=B002DUCMTC"]are eligible for a free copy of the equivalent version of Windows 7[/ame] when it is launched.

Answer:Windows 7 Pre-Order from Amazon.co.uk

Firstly, the only difference between 'upgrade' and 'full' versions is that with the 'upgrade' version you need a prior installation or DVD to install. (There are even ways round that.)
Secondly, if the free upgrade to 7 for Vista buyers is anything like what I went through with XP and Vista then I wouldn't bother. It will almost certainly be done by agents of MS through a voucher scheme, and last time it took quite a few months after Vista was released for the DVD to be delivered.

Hey everyone, I apologize in advance if I won't be able to answer all of your questions, but I'll try my best. I'm not an Active Directory Administrator, but I know a little.

Currently in our Windows Server 2003 environment, our users were experiencing slow response times on certain applications. It wasn't until we noticed that our consultants didn't have the same issue, and we traced it to the fact our users have a Home Profile set that maps an H:\ drive to their home folder.

All of our corporate systems are housed in a hosting facility and the users use clients installed on terminal servers there to access those applications. So when a user is logged into those terminal servers, their home folder will be across the WAN and the response times will be very slow at times (depending on users internet traffic and other things).

We think the issue is a Windows problem with DLL Search Order, but we can't pinpoint the resolution.

The way we determined this was by running ProcessMon from SysInternals and view what was going on. When we launched the application, it was searching for a particular DLL (XYZ.DLL, for instance). In ProcessMon, you would see a bunch of lines where the result was "NAME NOT FOUND", but the order looked something like this:

1 - Folder where Executable was launched
2 - C:\Windows\system32\xyz.dll
3 - C:\Windows\system\xyz.dll
4 - C:\Windows\xyz.dll
5 - H:\Windows\xyz.dll

I would like the 64 bit but Is It compatible with my computer? and how can I tell?, I know I am running 32 bit right now, But the Million dollor question Is can I run 64 bit on It. I would like the Windows 7, 64 bit so I can load my Computer up with maximum ram. I am running a duel core processor so It should be compatible with 64 bit, One other question Is When I go to the website to pre-order Windows 7 I do not see an option to buy 64 bit, So what are you getting when you want to order a version, 32 bit or 64?. I  am assuming the standard Buy Is 32 bit.

June 26th I went to Microsoft site and from there went to Walmart and pre-ordered 2 copies of the Windows 7 Professional Upgrade for 99.92 each. On the 10th of this month Walmart emails me and tells me that my order has been cancelled. After several emails and phone calls, they tell me that it is their policy to check with the credit card company every 30 days for verification. They tell me that in July they check and am good to go. They check again in August and am good to go. They check again and am denied by my credit card company. I would think that to my credit card company, it would appear that someone has tried to make this same purchase three times in three months and my card company has gotten suspicious.
So in essence, would it appear that because of Walmart's ****ed up policy, this purchase that I had thought was going to cost me 200.00 is now going to cost twice that.

Anyone else had this lousy experience with this lousy outfit....just curious?

Answer:Windows 7 Pre-order from Walmart.com

No, but I'm sure there are more ppl than you who have maxed out there credit card. And you know the business can not charge the CARD until they can verify the product has/can be shipped. That is to protect you as well as the shipper. In this case Walmart.
Last time I checked you can still PRE-Order from Several 3rd party org over the internet... under the same they can not charge until they can SHIP.

Hi,
I just installed Windows 7 RTM 64bit twice and notice something weird.
Hard Drive Order: (I have them setup in port order; port 0, port 1, port 2, etc....)
HD: 5 HD - port 0 is WD Raptor 150gb(primary part); rest are all 500GB and all identical in firmware and all setup for primary partition.
All HD are SATA and IDE is disable in the BIOS.

1st Installation:
BIOS: AHCI

After Win 7 installation, I see port 0(Raptor 150gb) as C:\ because that s where I install Win 7 onto. However, Port 1 is E:\, Port 2 is D:\.

Why is that?
2nd Installation:
BIOS: RAID
After Win 7 installation, I see port 0(Raptor 150gb) as C:\, port 1 as D:\, port 2 as E:\, etc..
CORRECT!!!
My understanding would be 2nd installation is correct regardless of BIOS being set to IDE, AHCI, or RAID in the BIOS. However, seems Windows 7 wants to do its own way when it's setup for AHCI. I understand Primary partitions comes before logical, but all 5 HDs all have primary partition only.

MB is Asus Rampage.
Any idea why?

Thank You!
 

Answer:How does Windows 7 determine the order of the HD?

That happened to me also. I just went to disk management (diskmgmt.msc) and changed all the drive letters to what I wanted them.

I recently purchased a new laptop (Dell Inspirion 17 5000 series) and I am so upset to see that Windows 10 does not have the Windows Photo Viewer or the Windows Live Photo Gallery- these two programs offer ways of printing photos (such as printing 2 4x6 or 5x7 pics on one page) and simple/quick one click enhancement features that I cannot find anywhere else! The Microsoft photo viewer that came with the PC is useless - it has no options or features! Help please or suggestions!!!!

Answer:Any way to get the Windows Photo Viewer & Windows Live Photo Gallery?

Yeah the default app isn't great. The old photo viewer can be enabled if you did an upgrade from 7 I believe. I think those with a clean install of 10 are bang out of luck though. I'm sure Brink posted a tutorial on how to do it but I'll need to dig around

Does it matter if I set Windows Live Photo Gallery as the Current Default, instead of Windows Photo Viewer ?
example : ico

Related question :
Why is Windows Live Photo Gallery not in the Default Programs list under Set Your Default Programs window ?

I Know I can use the " Associate a file type ... " to set the program I want as the Current Default, but that is not the point.

Thank you.

Answer:Windows Live Photo Gallery vs Windows Photo Viewer

Strange... Windows Live Photo Gallery shows in the default programs on my system, in the "Set your default programs" section. I can then click on it and set it to use all of its defaults.

Answer:Micro Center Windows 7 pre-order $39.99

Great deal! It ends tomorrow however which seems a little short. I wouldn't be suprised if these deals are around for a while. Microsoft has to EVERYTHING in its power to get Windows 7 into the hands of as many as possible and leave Vista in the past.

how can I put files in the order that I want ( not related to sort by name, size , date ....ext)

If I have files name 1, 2, 3 , in XP and vista I can put then in the order 2 3 1 by just draging them in the order that I want. But in windows 7 (or in my computer now), when I move file 1 to be the last one, it moves back to its original location

In other verisons of windows the tiles on the taskbar would be in order from time. If i opened Google Chrome, and then Adobe, and then another Google Chrome instance it would look that way. Now however it "groups" the two Google Chrome ones near other, and the Adobe one on the left. Anyway to change that?

Answer:Change order of taskbar windows?

Right click the Taskbar, then click Properties. Then select 'Never Combine' next to 'Taskbar Buttons'.

Missed out on the early preorder discounts? Popular retailer Newegg.com has listed the OEM prices for Windows 7, which will be offered at less than half what Microsoft will charge for a retail copy.
Newegg hasn't listed any prerequisites for buying the OEM version, such as the purchase of any additional hardware. Past OEM copies have prevented users from taking advantage of Microsoft's support options, however, and the packaging and instructions are usually minimal.

Answer:Want Windows 7 for 50 Percent Off? Order an OEM Copy

Thanks for the post. OEMs do not have support(supposidly)that retail versions have, but I've never had any problems with them and have always used them since '95, and in these times any saving is a saving.

When I search in Windows 10 using file explorer the results first shows items from my "H" drive and then my "G" drive and then my "F" drive and then my "C" drive last. How can I get the results from my "C" drive to appear first? I know how to sort my results, I just want to be able to SEE my "C" drive before the other drives.
Thanks

Answer:Windows Search Results Order

Right click on the explorer window. View > Sort by > Name.
It will change the sorting order. If it is ascending, it will be descending and vice-versa.

My explorer window ... normally .... After View > Sort by > Name, it appears as .... Hope it helps.

Answer:windows 7 order from amozon wrong need help

If you requested and paid for an End User Windows 7 disk that is what you should get. You shouldn't receive an OEM version which I take it is what you have got. DO NOT open it and arrange to return it to Amazon for a replacement.

As I stated in a previous post, I often work with multiple windows open in XP.On the Taskbar these are arranged left to right in the order they were opened. Does anyone know of a way to rearrange the order of these on the Taskbar.I ask because I often wish to cut and paste repeatedly between two windows and it would be very handy if I could place these next to each other on the Taskbar.As always, any advice would be greatly appreciated.Cheers,Dan.

Answer:Order of open windows on Taskbar

Try a search for "taskarrange" - small freeware programme that I think will allow you to do what you want to.

I read some guides that tell you to go into your bios when your pc starts up and make sure the cd-rom drive is listed before the hdd in the boot sequence. I did this, but it turns out my reinstallation disc is a dvd. Therefore, it didn't work in the cd-rom drive. I then put it in the dvd rom drive and tryed to get it to detect it first that way, but that didnt work either becase the dvd-rom drive isn't even listed in the boot sequence devices. I'm positive the dvd-rom drive doesn't count under the usb/cd-rom choice as I went into boot setup and tried to make it boot from there, and that did not work. What do I do?

Answer:Trying to reinstall windows in order to format hdd, help

I may be wrong but hit F10 after the BIOS screen flashes and I think that you can select to boot from CD/DVD... I'm not too sure though....
