If you want to view images, you either have to use Paint3D, which is a Photoshop-like software that is installed by default on all Windows machines, or you have to download a 3rd party image viewer. Since I am using my work's VM, the 3rd party software is not an option for me.
You might say I should just open the image in a browser. But my image is rotated 90 degrees, and I need to rotate it back. So my only option is to open it in Paint3D and rotate it there. But using Paint3D just for this is very annoying, because every time I open an image I have to wait for it to "Create new project", and it asks me to save when I close, whether or not I made any changes. And I can't save the image and be done with it, because I can only save the "project", and to save the image I will probably have to figure out how to "export" the image. Why can't there just be a simple image viewer, where you can view and rotate image, like they had in Windows XP? Why do they want to make things so difficult?
