Windows Picture & Fax Viewer Replacement for Win 10?


[link to this post]
 
Win 10 doesn't have one. Is there one?

It seems such a simple program: just loop thro' the pictures in a single folder or run a slideshoe thereof. I have it on XP but it seems not to be an executable but an integral part of Windows Explorer.

Can anyone recommend a replacement?

Windows Photo Viewer as used in Windows 7 is still there in Windows 10.

Thanks very much. Just the ticket & so simple.

It was in Win 10 all the while. Why couldn't MS offer it at least as an option? Their Photo app is so weak. It can't even go thro' a set of photos back & forth.

Most of these so-called modern apps on Windows 10 is rubbish, when I was using ten I replaced them all with my normal ones. some of them I use is getting on, but they do the job.
Even the calculator is awful, i never did find one that looked like the one that is in use in Windows 7 and 8.


Yes, the picture and fax viewer is in Windows 10 and yes it is a shame MS have hidden it, i suppose they want us all to use their modern apps.

The "classic" calculator can be downloaded from Microsoft: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.asp...

The "classic" calculator is not so good, IMO, as the native Windows 10 one. I'm talking here of function rather than appearance, which matters not one whit to me.

I don't use it that often anyway, I have a large Casio one on my desk that I normally use, but now and again it gets misplaced.
