    Windows Photo Viewer ignoring my folder sort options


    I like to sort some of my folders by date and for some reason I can't understand, when I open an image with WPV, it gets sorted by name instead of date (the folder remains the same, it's just the WPV that screws everything). If I wanted to see whatever I have inside the folder by name, I would just sort it by name for god's sake. Is there any way I can solve this?

    I'm not going to be much help, but I was under the impression Photo Viewer worked this way in all the more recent Windows versions.

    So basically I'll have to open and close every single file in order to see them the way they are sorted in my folder? That's nice.

    open photo app
    click on settings

    look under Source
    if you have multiple folders with images in each add the folder to the list

    I have 2 folders in mine
    the one from onedrive auto sorts by date and groups them together
    if I had more folders id add them to my list
    yes all images are shown within the app

    guess I should re read your post before I comment ... thought you was talking about the Photo App misunderstood WPV

    Well, since this seems to be intentional and apparently there is no way to change that, I guess I'll have to start using this bloody app. Thanks for the replies.

Solved Is Windows Photo Viewer gone?
I noticed a few builds ago (maybe 10162) that you could no longer set Windows Photo Viewer as the default picture opener. Now, it seems that MS is forcing you to use the Photos "app" instead. Is anyone else getting this issue?

Solved Replacement for Windows Photo Viewer?
I really liked the Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 7... The photo viewer built into Windows 10 is terrible. Anyone know any good replacements? Something light weight.
