    Hi, I seem to have deleted the photo app from the apps screen, just wondering if someone can point me in the right direction to get it back, I have looked everywhere and can't find it.

    Cheers Shane.

    That makes is seem like you uninstalled the app rather than just deleting its icon from the Start menu. If that is the case, simply launch the Store and search for "Photos". That will turn up a number of hits including "Microsoft Photos". The entry for "Microsoft Photos" will say "Installed" if it is really still on your computer or "Owned" if you've uninstalled it.

    It tells me it is installed, do you know what folder it is kept in.
    When I try to re install it I get an error code 0x80070005.

    Thanks
