  1. Microsoft Photos App will not load on Windows 11.


    I've gone through every single step Microsoft has suggested, from completely removing and reinstalling PowerShell to troubleshooting through the Microsoft Store. I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling manually from the Store, hitting the reset buttons, running SFC scans, and ensuring Windows is up to date. But none of these methods have fixed the problem across multiple computers. It's really frustrating because I keep seeing the same answers on different threads. Can someone please help me out?

    :)
