      Microsoft Photos vs Windows Live Photo Gallery opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Microsoft Photos is still a legitimate alternative to Windows Live Photo Gallery, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      So dumbed down from Live Photo Gallery that it's useless for any real image organization.

      No Tagging, no search by tag, no folder tree view, pointless and unusable partial image displayed for entire folder tree, complete lack of functionality or compatibility, awful navigation.
