Windows 7, Windows Photo Viewer Auto Minimize

Q: Windows 7, Windows Photo Viewer Auto Minimize

Hi Everyone
I do a lot of work on multiple picture choosing on windows 7 with 3x 27" screens.
When I open multiple Windows Photo Viewer iterations, e.g. 7 or more up to 14 with different pics and try to change the order of them left or right for a storyboard, ALL but the one I'm moving is Minimized to the title bar. ANY other app open is also
minimized. This action is capricious/arbitrary and doesn't happen every time.
Regardless, It drives me nuts. Is the anyway to defeat this crazy wizard that does this?
Many thanks to anyone who can assist. It will keep me out of the Looney Bin.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7, Windows Photo Viewer Auto Minimize

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently just upgraded my laptop and I am so upset to see that Windows 10 does not have the Windows Photo Viewer or the Windows Live Photo Gallery- these two programs offer ways of printing photos (such as printing 2 4x6 or 5x7 pics on one page) and simple/quick one click enhancement features that I cannot find anywhere else! The Microsoft photo viewer that came with the PC is useless - it has no options or features! Help please or suggestions!!!!

A:Any way to get the Windows Photo Viewer & Windows Live Photo Gallery?

Yeah the default app isn't great. The old photo viewer can be enabled if you did an upgrade from 7 I believe. I think those with a clean install of 10 are bang out of luck though. I'm sure Brink posted a tutorial on how to do it but I'll need to dig around

Does it matter if I set Windows Live Photo Gallery as the Current Default, instead of Windows Photo Viewer ?
example : ico

Related question :
Why is Windows Live Photo Gallery not in the Default Programs list under Set Your Default Programs window ?

I Know I can use the " Associate a file type ... " to set the program I want as the Current Default, but that is not the point.

Thank you.

Strange... Windows Live Photo Gallery shows in the default programs on my system, in the "Set your default programs" section. I can then click on it and set it to use all of its defaults.

Hi, I am looking all over to find an answer to my question about the windows photo viewer and cannot find anywhere. Please if you can't answer my question at least set me in the right direction??? When I go to print, it tells me that I can choose
only the "full photo" size. I know it also has choices of wallet, 5x7, double picture side by side, stuff like that. It will not ever show up when I hit print and go to put in all the variables for how I want the picture to be printed. Where are
my choices? how do I find them, why are they not available on my photo viewer print option? I am working on an asus laptop, I think it is an 8.1 operateing system. But,,, I also have the same problem with my other laptops and desk top  programs. It will
not give me the option to print out wallet size pictures or any of the other options except "Full Photo". Help! Thank you in advance. Oh and I have no idea where to find the answer to this question so I am giving you my email to send it too if your
able. Please send to don ee me be at hot mail .com (I hope you figure this out because it says I can't send you any links and now I don't know how to get your answers. ) . Please this has been a mystery for the last 3 years now.
I give up trying to find a repair on my own. I am not so tech savvy. Again, thank you, thank you , thank you in advance. sincerely, donna

Seriously, how do the people who work for the richest person in the entire world (bill gates, richest person in the world) making the world's main computer OS sit around and make this stuff? Do they say, 'Let's make Windows 10 even worse than 8 was to XP, no?". "Let's remove functionality from photo viewer, and so many other things, and replace it with a useless app that does less and is stupid, good idea, right?", "Yea let's definitely make everything worse. And to fix it they have to hack the registry and possibly mess up their whole computer and/or use sketchy downloads and third party plugins and stuff, if it even can be fixed".

I figured out through other peoples' forum threads how to make Photo Viewer default instead of the Photo app or whatever it is which doesn't even let you even zoom with mouse scroll wheel. There's a stupid + - you have to click to get like a %3 zoom each time, very nice change.

But still, after changing the default viewer, when I select 5 photos to view, Normally you'd get them all in one window, and you click Next to scroll through them, And you would only scroll through the 5 you selected, not the entirety of the folder's photos which is what's happening. I select 5 photos and it opens 5 separate windows. And if I scroll Next for one of the photos, it won't even only scroll though the 5 I selected, it goes in some other order.

I crop and design new pictures on my vista OS in Photoshop cs2. Once I'm done the changes I flatten and save it as .jpg. When I upload the pictures to the server and try opening them on a XP OS they work fine, the problem is when I try printing them on the XP, both sides of the picture gets cut off. But on vista it works fine.
To add a little more detail, when using XP OS and opening/viewing .jpg pictures in “Windows Picture and Fax Viewer” they come out fine. But when I try to printing them, in “Full page fax print” they come out fine, perfect, but when I try “Full page photo print” both sides of the picture get cut off. The “contact sheet” prints fine, but “8 x 10” cuts of the edges.
I have tried one other vista machine in the office and it works perfect. I also tried 2 other computers running XP OS and both do the same, they cut off the edges.
I do know that vista uses “Windows Photo Gallery” and XP uses “Windows Picture and Fax Viewer”.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
I attached one of the pictures that does not work in XP but does work in Vista.

Hello everyone,
I recently bought a new dell laptop. Im running a Windows 7 Home premium x64. Now since the start i have noticed a few weird things happening.
1. When ever im using a browser ie. Internet explorer and google chrome, my browser scrolls down automatically to the bottom page even if im typing or watching a video.
2. when im playing a fulls screen online video my video tends to auto pause.
3. when ever i donot have a browser open and i open any other window/application everything minimizes, though i haven't noticed these issues when im playing game in full screen.

this happens quiet frequent and even continuously happens about 2-4 times max at a time. on a note the screen is touch screen as well i have run the dell support tests but everything seems fine. please help me resolve this
Really appreciate ur help q.q

Not a major problem for me, but a bit distracting.
The problem is the WPV over-saturates any photos I'm looking at. They look fine in Photoshop, bridge, web browser, but always slightly over-saturated with extra blacks thrown in, even cranked ISO. Doesn't happen with all photos, but mainly the ones I took with my camera. I'm working on W7, any knowledge on this would be great, thanks.

I'm having a small problem with Windows Photo Viewer. Well, I don't know if it's just how it was setup, but it seems like when I view a photo using Windows Photo Viewer it seems like a hint vanilla is added to the picture. It seems to do this regardless of whether I have the picture just opened or if it's zoomed in. The only time it doesn't do this is during a slideshow. I'm attaching a picture to show what I mean about how the color is slightly different. Any help anyone can offer on this is appreciated.

-Also, it does this with every photo I've tried so far and with just about every image format I can think of.

Brand new Win 7 machine, from day one every 3rd jpg pic is a tall narrow line whereas any other photo viewer including the XP microsoft viewer from my old notebook opens them fine. What is odd is that they show ok in slide show.
Also XP mode on this machine opens them fine.
This is strange, I can resize the pics and no difference.
Something has changed in the microsoft photo viewer from XP to 7.

This sector of TSG I think is the nearest to what I'm trying to find out about. I am using Windows 8.1 and my question is, "Is Windows Photo Viewer only available to view photo's when a device is connected".
I have a load of photo's taken on my mobile which now I can only view on WPV when the mobile's connected. I have tried to locate it to view images but without a hit. I know its there some where because when I go down the list of program files on OS. (C) drive, it is there but I don't know how to access it unless the mobile is connected via usb. So my second question is, "Where and how, if possible can I locate it to bring up to the screen".

Hi UshereI'm not aware of any way to do that with the Photo Viewer.If you are viewing a picture in a folder that contains multiple pictures, you can scan through all of the pictures in that folder by using the right/left Arrow Keys or by clicking the right/left buttons at the bottom of the screen.Hope this helps.Thank You for testing Windows 7

Hello, this message is for Brink.

Just to let you know your tip for making the photo viewer app work in 10 has worked nearly perfectly: but i did discover one small issue and i was hoping you'd know what causes it, and that you could post it and email it to me.

when I open the viewer, I cannot scroll beyond the last photo (returning to the first photo in the directory) Also, when I open any photo after the first one, I cannot scroll backward to the first one. for example, if i have 10 pictures and i open picture 5, i cannot loop back to pictures 1 2 3 or 4. if i open picture 1 i can scroll forward to picture 10, and back to picture 1, but if i open picture 10, i can only see picture 10. i cannot carousel around the photos in that directory. it seems to be linear and not looping.

I hope that this is an easy fix. We are going to 10 at my jobsite and so far the photo store had wreaked havoc on us. we have since disabled the store, but that disables all store related apps and functions, which defaults pictures to MSPAINT. So, i was hoping to get back to the windows 7 photo viewer and happened upon your advice (thank you), and im hoping for just one more tweak to make it perfect.

Hello. I am experiencing a problem with this COM Surrogate while viewing some (!) of my pictures. I tried to search for the solutions through different forums, but none helps me with that. Windows Photo Viewer works fine with the photos that were already for quite a long time on, but newer, downloaded or created via paint - it seems this doesn't work properly there. It works really slow and 95% chances are that it will freeze eventually. The strange thing is that I restored my system on 5-6 days back, and after it has done its restoration, I checked all the photos that were having trouble to be opened. They worked fine .. until the following day though.. I did not install any update and started to check, whether it works ok or not.

Delete adobe InDesign, Version Cue and OnLocation - failed. (CS5 and had no Version Cue.. could not find it there).
Update KIS with certain patch - is not for me. I am using ESETNod32.
System restore - failed as well (but i ll try once more).
Have no Nero or DivX - installed.
turning off Data Execution Prevention on dllhost - haven't tried yet, but I read it makes the security or protection at some point less effective.. would like to avoid doing this then..

While this post is provoked by Windows Photo Viewer (WPV) it is not necessarily specific to any particular software product but rather related to what, for me at least, is the absence of consistency between different products that are supposed to be doing
