    Creating a new Microsoft Photos registry


    I'm having some issues with my Microsoft photos. Earlier today I had to clear out a few registry files due to some virus issues. I think during this, the Microsoft photos app may have accidentally had its reg file hit on the chopping block. The app opens then closes about a second later. I've tried the PowerShell removal and reinstall with no success. Does anyone know of another method to fix it?


    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Creating a new Microsoft Photos registry

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild


    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done Creating a new Microsoft Photos registry :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.
