    App store and Photo app annoying


    Basically I have a problem... Every time I leave my computer for more than 5 minutes the App Store and Photo app opens. It is bugging me as it minimizes games I am in. I then just right click and exit.

    Any ideas on how to prevent this?

    :)

    Microsoft Photos update loop often in windows 10

    Original title: Microsoft Photos update ;loop in Microsoft Store App

    Just a moment ago, Store app offer ed me three downloads. One for Get started, and the last on is Microst Photos. I cannot remember another one.

    The update process completed fine for all three apps, But once I quit Store app, then restart the app, then check for uodate, Microsoft Phtotos is the only app that reappear in the Update available, again and again. The update of Microsoft Phtotos loop again
    and again

    This is very annoying. Fix please and if any friend and expert here can offer me a fix, that will be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    Windows Photos App doesnt show in Explorer

    The annoying thing about this is I have fixed it previously but cant remember how I did it.

    Anyway here goes again, when I open Explorer there is a list of all my all my folders on the left hand side. At the bottom of the list was Photos.

    Now its disappeared. The problem is when I'm posting a picture and use Browse I can not see the Photos app. Pictures is there , but it seems not all photos store in the Pictures folder, most are stored in the Photos app, hence I am unable to find the photo
    I need .

    Hi,

    Try going into Setting, Privacy then Background apps

    turn off the option to allow these to run in the background
