  1. "Open with" option missing when I select more than one file


    Hi,I use the Windows "photo" program for viewing photos however I often use Photoshop to edit them. In windows 10 I was able to select two or hundreds of files, right click and select "Open with" in order to open the photos with Photoshop/Paint3D/Firexox/any other program. Since updating to Windows 11 I can only use the "open with" option if I select and right click on a single file. It appears nicely between "open" and "set as desktop background". When I select even just two files the option vanishes and cannot be found anywhere in the contextual menus.Is this a deliberate or accidental ****

    :)
