Windows 10: Why won't MS Picture Manager auto-rotate my photos?

    Why won't MS Picture Manager auto-rotate my photos?


    Help! I've just returned from Europe with over 2,500 pictures, many of them photos of paintings that I took vertically with my Leica X2. When beginning to edit them with Microsoft Picture Manager, I found when looking at thumbnails that the verticals were not displayed rotated. And when reviewing individual vertical photos and saving them rotated, they still displayed vertically when again looking at thumbnails.

    I have been using Picture Manager for several years with Windows 7 and Office 2010 and the same camera -- and the verticals were always auto-rotated and stayed rotated after being saved. I now have a monstrous job ahead of me and would appreciate some help.

    I would really appreciate knowing how to solve this problem!

    I don't know if either of these would help but it seems to be a change after Windows 7 in the way thumbnails are treated.

    Neither seem to present an easy solution though...

    Many thanks, Ix07 -- Your first link brought me to a thread that led me to a free site and AutoRotate Setup.zip. It works beautifully and solved my problem!
