Windows 10: Classic Picture Viewer Solved

    Classic Picture Viewer

    The new one is terrible, it's like a phone app or something. Is there a way to get the windows 7 style one back, or something close that that one?

    If you mean Windows Photo Viewer: Yes, it is still there; you find it in C:/Program Files/Windows Photo Viewer. But be aware: The sorting function might be broken. Ahh, that is what you can then tell me: Are the images still opening in the correct order for you in Windows Photo Viewer?

    Not there - Photo Viewer

    Not in my system it ain't ? I have a folder called Windows Photo Viewer. See attached. There is no exe or file to run. But I seem to be able tio use Photo Viewer when looking at older photos. When I come to view newer ones, it reverts to the standard (yuccy) app.

    You should have the standard Photos App - if not, you can install it from the store. I find it quite useful for viewing photos.

    You could also consider MS Photo Gallery from
