Default windows “Photo” app is clumsy at some point, missed the earlier “Photo Viewer” program. So, going back to root and after googling, here’s a small hack to enable “Windows Photo Viewer” in windows 10 edition.
- Download the photo.zip and unzip it. You’ll get a photo.reg file. The file is created from this forum http://www.tenforums.com/software-apps/8930-windows-photo-viewer-gone-2.html#post290818
- Double-click on your new REG file to merge it with your Windows Registry. You will need to click through the User Account Control and a few other windows to allow the file to make changes to the Registry.
- Basically you are done.
- Next what you need is to right click on any JPEG/JPG/BMP/PNG/GIF file that you want open/view using legacy windows photo viewer and make it as default.
