    Default Viewing pictures

    I want to view my pictures the way I did in windows 7. It wasn't Picasa or windows 8 program or neither Windows photo viewer I don't think. I want to be able to view my pictures and copy the to an email or desktop or whatever without having to go through a complicated process. This is just one of the things I find confusing about windows 8. Thank you so much.

    Isn't the deep drive what windows photo viewer is or is this a different one to download? Some where I read that you can use the windows 7 photo in windows 8, but can't find that article again. I really hate Windows 8. When I got my laptop, they said all the laptops and desktops all have windows 8. I couldn't find one with windows 7.

    Patti, I understand you have some health issues. Your daily computing tasks seems to be stressing you out too much. Why don't you back-up your files, reset and sell that Win 8 laptop and get another one with Win 7, or if you love your machine now, just bring it to any Bestbuy / PC store and have it downgraded to Win 7. Do it now or forever hold your peace.

    Badrobot....you're a riot!

    As I've been reading this and other Win-8 forums and topics for about a year and a half now, I see one re-occurring theme. People who are used to running XP or 7, jump up to 8 and expect it to work the same. First they get lost, then they get frustrated and then they wind up here....expecting us to fix everything for them.

    Dudes and dudesses, that ain't a gonna happen!

    You need to first install the Classic Shell program and get your Win-8 desktop looking as much like your previous OS as possible. Forget about even looking at that Metro crap and those crazy apps. DO Everything, on the desktop.
    Just play like it's XP on a bad day! lol

    As for viewing and working with photos from my digital cameras, I use the same little program that I've been using on XP....called simply "Photo Filtre" (no I didn't misspell it, it's French)

    I use it for everything to do with my photos, even doing screen captures. I've shown many of my customers how to use it and they find it much quicker and easier to use than Picassa or what ever comes with Windows.
    I call it the poor man's Photo Shop.

    Anyone who wants to try it, can download it here:

    On the flip side, some folks who have no computer expertise of their own, should not try to live off of other peoples expertise. They need to sign up for a computer course, somewhere.
    This is a help forum, but definitely NOT "Computers 101".
    I actually used to teach that course, for our Community Education Dept.
    I always had to start from "this is how you turn it on".

    I see the forum is back up, after a two day vacation. That was really weird!

    Cheers Mate!

    Ooops, I'm sorry if I sounded kind of harsh. No offense meant. It's just that I noticed Patti is having a difficult time and probably just worsening her health condition. I am with Patti. Win 8 is different. I'm sure for some people this is a welcome change. But for most, it is ridiculous. I want to sell my Win 8 PC too but I guess i'll just keep it for my daughter who has not seen Win XP & 7 yet...hahaha. She is actually using it now to watch her Yo Gabba Gabba shows... :P

    Whew! My eyes are killing me!

    I know I'm not as observant as I maybe once was, but I have both Win8 Pro and Win8.1 on separate hard drives and when running them, I don't really see a lot of differences. It all comes down to "will it run my favorite programs?"
    I really don't care about all the eye candy.
    If 8.1 was supposed to be the fix-all to end-all, it seems to be a total waste of time and effort.
    MS Windows started on the downhill slide with Vista and today, it continues the slide.

    But as my everyday OS, I still prefer XP-Pro-SP3. It runs every bit of software that I need to run and does it without all the gobbledegook of Win8. It boots faster, shuts down faster and will run on a FAT-32 hard drive. Try that with Win8 and you'll be picking up computer parts till next week.

    But, people who can't handle Win8, should really stick with some OS that they CAN handle.
    Or pick a different hobby. Maybe try knitting. Or bird watching.
