    Open File Location - Microsoft Photos


    Hi,


    I used to have the option to 'open file location' when I right-clicked an image inside of photos.

    It used to be between these two options Open File Location - Microsoft Photos fdd77044-62d8-463e-8e36-510915da0e1f?upload=true.png

    But it has disappeared.


    I can't find anything about this online, please help.

    :)

    Unable to open .svg files with Microsoft Photos


    Unable to select Microsoft Photos app for .svg file association when using the Open With context menu

    So I tried installing ownership context menu to actually access the Microsoft Photos app, which pointed to the directory, C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\

    But there is no exe in that folder, and it seems when checking task manager and opening file location of the Microsoft Photos app when it's open, it points to a created folder inside the above folder. So it creates an individual folder each time the application is open.

    The option isn't under Settings \ System \ Default Apps \ Choose default application by file type

    Again, I run into the same problem without being able to select the application when trying to choose based on the .svg extension.

    So there is no way of selecting the Microsoft Photos app to associate with .svg

    So I'm kinda out of ideas here, assistance / thoughts appreciated

    Cheers

  3. 1.63 gb in empty photos app

    Hi James,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    • Is there any hidden files and folders in photo app?
    This issue could be caused due to a corrupted system file. I would suggest you try these steps and check:

    I would suggest you try the restore library option and check if it helps. Please back up all the files in the library before trying this, just to make sure you don’t lose any files. Refer these steps:

    • Open Windows explorer
    • In the left panel, locate Library and right click on it
    • Click “restore default libraries” option
    • Check if the issue persists.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Removing duplicate photos from Microsoft Photos

    Hi Tony,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Deleting photos from Microsoft Photos will delete the files from the original location. However, Microsoft Photos will only display the photos from the folders that are added to Photos application. You can remove the folders from Microsoft Photos that
    you don’t want. Follow the steps mentioned below:



    1. Open Microsoft Photos app.
    2. Click on the Ellipsis on the top right corner of the window and click on
      Settings.
    3. Under Sources, remove the folder that has duplicate photos by clicking on
      X.


    To remove the duplicate photos from the computer, please navigate to the location where the photos are saved and then you can delete the photos are duplicate.
