    How to disable Photos from automatically opening downloaded pictures?


    This Q has been asked several times already and none of the suggestions work. I thought the problem was with Microsoft Photos app - so I downloaded another photo app and made it default, but the problem continued. It doesn't matter to which folder the photos are saved.


    If you download 10 photos from FaceBook, you have to close the photos app 10 times!


    This problem has only just started recently for me.

    How to disable Photos from automatically opening pictures?

    Every time I download a picture from the internet, the Photos app insists on automatically opening it and displaying it to me. If I download many photos, it opens many times. How do I disable photos from automatically opening pictures that I download?
    If I want them opened, I'll open them myself. The pop-ups when downloading images is very annoying.
