Windows photo Gallery open order


New Member
Hey Iam just wondering is there a way to change hows photo gallery opens folder, what I mean is right now when I open a pic up and hit next instead of opening the next pic to the left or right it opens the one under it.

its annoying because I want to view the pictures in the order I took them.

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.
