Because it works in alphanumeric way which means it sorts by characters.
If you want to sort pictures by date, please do as follows
1: Open Picture folder
2: Simply Right click (don't click any files) > Click Sort by > Click Date
This sorts pictures by date..
To confirm whether system has sorted correctly,
2: Simply Right click (don't click any files) > Click view > click Details

I have received the same answer to my request for help on Monday 14 April as on Saturday 12 but unfortunately does not enable me to rearrange my pictures in the sequence I would like for a slide presentation i.e. dates from 1920 to 2014. With my previous P.C. Windows XP I was able to drag the same pictures into required sequence but when I purchased a new Hewlett-Packard Windows 8 my supplier transferred a number of programmes from the original unto the new one but not in the same sequence. I hope this information helps you to give me a satisfactory answer. John McClelland.
Hello . Here are four file names associated with the pictures I want to re arrange as discussed on 14th April. 2014.
1. Jan. 1920. Mother & Father.
2. March 1950. Wedding.
3. Dad & Liz. 1990.
4. Twins. 2002.
I have now carried out your latest instruction in relating to changing all the captions below my pictures (all seventy of them) to show the years first.
Despite doing this task and right click outside the images and sorting by date I still have not been able to rearrange my pictures as previously with Windows XP programme. This is to enable me to present a slide show from the early date of 1920 > 2014. What more can you suggest? Is it that the dates are going back too far? Could I delete all the dates and images and start again with only numbers say 1 to 70 > get into order and afterwards add the details and captions.
Hello. Thanks for still trying to help me with my problem. I don't quite understand what you mean by checking my system by remote but I am ready to try anything. Are you going to contact me by phone to make a time to view my pictures, as I do not have the computer switched on all the time. You could also arrange a time by e-mail and I will be ready.
MANY THANKS John [email protected]
I have no means of checking the dates of the same five five pictures in XP and Windows 7 computer as that model has been scrapped although all transferred to Windows 8 but I do admit that many of the original pictures did not have a date at all. It was only when you advised me that it was necessary to re arrange according to the date that I put all of them into correct sequence starting with 1920 up to 2013. Please tell me if there is anything further I can do to put them in order for a slide show. John.
