Warning: maybe there is one ugly disturbing factor in these downloads: all pictures (and movies) originating from shares via social media like Whatsapp have got the date of downloading, so they can't be sorted correctly between your normal camera pictures anymore. And that can't be corrected easily, especially if it are many. 
The basic mistake is that these media should not be used for serious sharing, because the pictures send are technically murdered by these extremely popular apps, resulting in much less pixels and complete loss of any metadata. 

I am curious if Chris has any valuable comment to that worldwide problem not caused by Google?

@Rinus - I don't have a whole lot to add to that, except to verify that WhatsApp/Facebook etc. do severely downsize photos and strip them of all metadata, including date taken. Here's my video on changing dates on photos: https://geeksontour.com/2020/01/607-gp-change-photo-dates/

Thanks Chris, you can't do better - at least for your old prints scanned. 

But in case of WA c.s. the date & time shown on Google Photos often will be quite near to the actual shooting date & time because they are posted somewhat later on the same day or the next day. So you may get the impression there is no problem, but at downloading to computer, is goes totally wrong. 

So in that case you need the Windows method to correct and then you can take the indicated date & time on GP as a reference. Because you can't add the correct timezone in Windows, you can take the timedifference into account if the these pictures were posted in Australia :-)

It all will be a hell of a job, especially when WA is much more popular (and easy) then quality sharing via Google Photos - then there would no such date problem at all and better picture quality also. 
Hard to improve mankind. 

Stay carefull and all the best together / Rinus
