    A problem with Win 10 Home Photos app


    This is on my Gateway laptop, OS Win 10 Home 64 bit. I keep getting the following error message:
    --------------
    An app default was reset
    An app caused a problem with the default app setting for *.jpeg files, so it was reset to photos.
    --------------
    I also get the same error message for the following *.GIF and *.BMP files. when trying to view the files.
    I have found a way to uninstall the Photos app. But it seems to not have worked. I have an image prog called "IrfanView". I have been using it for years and it has served me well. I am a firm believer of "if it an't broke, don't fix it". It was a long time after Win 10 came out that I made the jump from Win 7 to Win 10. I should upgrade IrfanView. The version that I have is for Win 7 Home 32 bit. I still run Win 7 home 32 bit on my Sony backup laptop. The Sony laptop is about 3 to 4 years older then the Gateway. The Sony still get's the job done for what I need it for.

    :)

    Just a suggesting. Clear all file associations via the GUI:

    Then head to Settings> Apps> Default Apps> Choose Default Apps By File Type

    Then set image file associations to something else.

    Uninstall Irfanview completely using a third party uninstaller that scans for leftovers.

    Then reboot and reinstall it. Set file associations for Irfanview via "Open With" > "Always use this app"

    See if you get the same problem.

    Definitely upgrade to the latest version. I have 4.42, but 4.54 is the latest. Like you I've been using it as long as I can remember. I'll upgrade as soon as I'm done here.
