I'm looking for a Photo Viewer for Windows 10 Home 64-bit that's as close as possible to that found on Windows 7. I've tried Microsoft Photos on the Windows Store but once I zoom in or make an image I'm viewing full screen, the other options at the top of the screen disappear & refuse to come back unless I restart the app. I know there's loads of third party programs like this available on the Windows Store & probably elsewhere too. I'd like the communities opinions on some of these though so I don't accidentally get something malicious. Most specifically, I just want a tool to view, zoom, rotate & skip to next photo within that folder. I use Gimp for advanced editing which takes too long to open if I just need to check out an image quickly. So which app do y'all use or recommend?

Have a look at FastStone Image Viewer. I've been using it for a few years now, thanks to earlier recommendations here at BC  :)

The other obvious alternative is Irfanview ( https://www.irfanview.com/ ), my image viewer of choice. Both this and FastStone have their admirers on BC and they are both excellent viewers. They work in different ways and have a different emphasis in their features. I have tried FastStone but find Irfanview works better for me. I have to view, choose, re-name and save in a different folder a lot of photos and Irfanview makes this incredibly easy.

 

Since they are both free to download I suggest you try both and see which works best for you.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

XnView?  Briefly tested its use and it was good; several months ago.  Maybe still worth a try.
