Microsoft Photos and Photo Viewer for Windows 10
Recently Windows 10 replaced with new app called Microsoft Photos. If you’re using an older version of Windows then you can find the most recent edition of Microsoft Photos for free in the Microsoft Windows online shop.
You can continue using the Picture Viewer on Windows 10. If you’ve built Windows 10 on top of a previous update, this is easier to do.
In that case, using the Windows 10 Settings menu, you can set it as your default photo programme.
1.Click the “Start Menu” button, and in the search box, type “Settings,” then click the “Settings” icon.
2. Press “System” in the “Settings” menu and then click “Default Apps.”
3. Pick the “Windows Photo Viewer” programme under “Photo Viewer” and exit the menu. In the future, images will open using the Windows Photo Viewer.
If you’re using a Windows 10 device, you’ll need to update the Windows Registry, an operating system settings folder, to enable the Photo Viewer. To do this, you will find files online, but make sure you trust the source of any changes to the registry you make because they can damage your computer.
