Windows (and probably other OS) now accept spaces in image and other file names. When I upload such a file through the Media Library upload in WP the spaces are replaced with dashes and (so far) all such files can be used throughout my site.
If I upload using ‘Gallery’ upload the spaces are not replaced and although the images appear in the Media Library using them becomes unpredictable. Typically the title is the whole file name including extension (so at least they can be spotted easily), there is no file name for the image in the Edit Media panel and attempting to use them as attachments in posts and pages may fail with an error message xxx yyy.ext is not an image file.
