long time Canon user as you can tell with ZoomBrowser in the Subject..  still using it on my Win 10 PC's.. mainly to upload pics off my SD card.. it just works the way I want it to..  just got a new HP 13"Laptop Windows 11..   ZoomBrowser EX will not install.. is there any way I can get it to install or was Win 10 the last way to do it .. I don't want to connect the camera thru a USB cable..  lastly is there a similar Canon software to do the same??...I know the EOS Utility but that's not what I'm looking for...  using Canon 6dMkII.. 80d..60d SX50HS

CanonImageBrowserEX CD Disk-1.jpglooks like I solved my own problem... found an old Canon CD with Image Browser EX on it.. not sure if it came with my old 60d or my 80d .. anyway.. I copied the Canon contents from the CD using my Dell Desktop PC to a USB thumb drive.. I inserted the thumb drive into my new HP Envy 13" Laptop with Windows 11 .. I installed the Universal Installer and just the Image Browser EX software... it works the same as my old ZoomBrowser EX.. when I insert an SD card into a USB card reader into my Win 11 laptop I have it setup in Autoplay to d/l to Image Browser EX..  I can choose the same options as my old ZB with the window that shows up.. All.. New.. etc.. and it's setup to d/l into chronological dated folders with Year_Month_Day  to keep my folder hierarchy the same as I've done for many years..

I think most to us would agree that if you want to just upload images to your computer, the simplest and arguably the most efficient, is to remove the card from your camera, and plug it into a SD reader attached, or part of your computer.

The OS File Manager will see it as a removable drive and then you just copy the files across to whatever drive(s) you want.  No special cables, no draining the camera battery to do so and the downloads should be the fastest to boot!

been using ZB for many many thousands of pics to d/l to my PC's.. I know the File Manager way to do it as you stated.. but it just works best for me using ZB by inserting the SD card in the slot.. up pops the ZB window to d/l.. choose 'new' images from the card.. hit the d/l button and it puts them in a nice consecutive dated file using year_ month_ day format.. so e-z.. oh well.. I guess 'one must adapt'  .. thanx  🙂

Canon stopped releasing updates to ZoomBrowser several years ago.  If it worked for you on a Windows 10 machine, than I think that was a really happy accident.

I know that Canon discontinued ZB a while back including any updates.. I have it on 4 PC's running Windows 10.. I know a few people who also have it running on their Win 10 PC's..  then it ended on my new Win 11 laptop..
