    Default Photos Stored on External Drive

    HELP, stupid OS. All my photos are stored on an external drive. Cannot view all photos like a slide show that you could on Win XP and Vista. How in the world are you able to view the photos similar to Win XP and Vista, if possible. Who in the world developed this stupid Win 8?

    What photo software are you using to view your photos? The native photo viewer and not the photo app, still has the slide show option like in windows 7, it's the middle tab.

    Why you don't use some Internet web storage for your photos and other stuffs, i think it is easier for everything (edit, share..)

    And, Windows 8 is not a "stupid OS", not @ all! What Jim said is correct about choosing what photo handler is used. But, also, if you open your Photos from your ext drive... now, look @ the Ribbon & Select the View tab... there's a Slide Show 'button' there

    Be sure, whatever you want Windows 8 to do, it can.

    Cheers,
