  1. Hidden picture are visible in default photos app


    when I tried making some photos hidden using the " attrib +s +h 'path' ", they're still visible in the photos app. I don't understand why it is happening but this makes no sense of making the files hidden or making them invisible.


    e.g. Trying to hide the directory containing some personal photos.


    path = c:\users\jayes\Pictures\myThing


    in cmd at this path, I type the following command

    > attrib +s +h c:\users\jayes\Pictures\myThing

    this folder will get hide at this moment


    but at the same time if you try opening the PHOTOS app the photos in this folder, are still available

    :)

    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 Hidden picture are visible in default photos app :) 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.

    I suggest you to change the Default apps in the setting app and verify the result. You may follow the steps in the below:

    • Go to settings and system.

    Method 2:

    I suggest you to reinstall Photo app using the PowerShell command

    • Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
