How can I organize my photos?

Episode 1593 (1:45:59)

Leo from Van Nuys, CA
IrfanView UI

Leo has a bunch of pictures that he has on a large USB stick, but they're all out of order chronologically. How can he organize them?  Leo says that when you take a picture with any phone, it puts the time and date in the metadata attached to the file. But some programs won't look at that, instead of looking at the file creation date. A photo program like Windows 10 Microsoft Photos will do it. You can download it from the Microsoft store for free. Irfanview is another one. Windows 10 file explorer can also sort by date taken.
