Windows 7 64-bit

This is not a question.
In case you didn't know, changing the orientation of a preview changes 
the image's disk file's Exif data.
Not all programs understand what to do about that.

I did this:
   Albums view
   Double click on a thumbnail
   Rotate the preview  (might be the same with flip)
   Display the image file with ...
     Microsoft Picture Manager - image is not rotated
     Microsoft Word 2003 - not rotated
     File Viewer Lite - rotated
     GIMP - GIMP asks whether to rotate
     LibreOffice Draw - rotated
     Faststone Image Viewer - rotated
     Microsoft Office Document Imaging - not rotated
     Darktable Photo Workflow - rotated
     Paint - not rotated
