I have a set of images in a folder that are labeled 1,2,3,4,5 etc all the way to 200

They should scroll in the order they are listed e.g, 1,2,3,4,5

However, they are scrolling in a strange manner e.g, 1,34,67,13,126,137,15

I am using Picasa photo viewer

They used to scroll in order.  How can I make then scroll correctly again?

I rebooted my computer and now the problem seems to have gone away.  I would like to know what caused it though in case it happens again.

Picasa Photo Viewer does not display images in the order of numerically sorted filenames but the last modified dates.

You can rename photos to suit the order you want to view them in (date / name / etc. )

Bulk Rename Utility:
Free File Rename Utility for Windows. Rename multiple files with the click of a button. Batch renaming made easy.
