    Photo Viewer does not show photos in sorted order


    I store both RAW (CR2) and JPG versions of all my photos, with each folder sorted by type. Before Windows 10 this allowed me to view all the JPGs without the CR2 (which take longer to load). The new version insists that I view both! How do I restore the original functionality.

    For details on the Photos app sort order, see a previous post of mine in this post:
    Windows 10 photo viewer

    If you want to view all the JPG's without the Canon CR2 raw files, then go to Photos App > Settings > and turn on 'Linked Duplicates'. "Exact Duplicates are shown as a single file. This might include copies saved in different folders and RAW files.

    Thank you, but I was hoping to avoid using the Photos App. I prefer Windows Photo Viewer.

    That's also covered in the link I posted. If you change the sort order of a folder in Windows File Explorer and then open one of the photos with Windows Photo Viewer, it will then display the photos from that folder by that order as you scroll though them.

    You can also type *.jpg in the Windows File Explorer search box to just show jpg files in Windows Photo Viewer for that folder for example.

    "Linked Duplicates" was already turned on. When I import the photos they come in as IMG_1.CR2, IMG_1.JPG, IMG_2.CR2, IMG_2.JPG, etc.
    I change the sort order to show first all CR2 and then all JPG.
    I go into Windows Photo Viewer, open the 1st .JPG photo and then try to > to the next .JPG - I get CR2 instead!

    No matter what I try, I am unable to reproduce what you're experiencing. Maybe someone else will come along who has experienced the same issue as you and will be able to better advise you.
