    Need help with getting "Choose a default" to work in Photo Viewer


    Hello again. You are correct about that, meaning, I did state I had tried "open with".

    Turns out, by simply using "open with" the problem was not solved. By taking the extra step after selecting "open with" and not selecting Photoshop there as one would expect to work, but instead selecting "choose another app" and then selecting Photoshop listed there, the setting held. It's certainly a convoluted way of selecting one's desired photo viewer.

    Thanks again.

    How to get rid of raw file support in windows photo viewer?



    Microsoft photo viewer does not work [​IMG]


    I have downloaded this, and it did not work; photo viewer is not in the list of programs in Open With or Default App. I used option 2 step 3, followed by step 5 to 9.

    Restore Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10  


    Thanks! I tried it, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I'm sure it's probably something I did on my end....

    I tried the 'undo' but photo viewer was still there after I did that. I did step #3 again and it's still the same. I can still rearrange, but can't view in that order. I don't see the photo viewer listed twice under 'open with'.

    Any insights? Thanks!
