    Photo App wont start on Win 10


    October 24, 2018


    Greetings from East Haven Connecticut.


    A couple of weeks ago, for some unexplained reason, none of the pictures on my Picture file won't open. Instead, I would get an error message saying the photo app won't start.


    For several days I tried various suggestions from Google, YouTube and indeed even sought tech support but none worked.


    In desperation, I decided to completely uninstall the app and replace it with something else which I was reluctant to do but it seemed the only logical option so in preparation I opened my Revo Unins Pro 4.0 and selected the Photo App listed under Windows App and proceeded to uninstall the same.


    After doing a restart and to satisfy my curiosity, I decided to download the Photo App again and would you know it, IT OPENED! It worked!!!


    Uninstalling the App completely meaning "cleanly"; no files left, cured the problem (for me at least)

    :)

    photo app in windows 10 wont load

    my photo app wont open, and I cant uninstall it for it does not come up in the apps list in the settings. But it is in the all apps list.

    When I have tried to reinstall it from playstore it says already installed. But wont open, and the new Twinui default photo view app wont open any jpeg files it say "class not registered".

    I have followed other suggestions of troubleshooting, and system scan with no results.

    Any suggestions?

    regards

  3. WINDOWS 10 MICROSOFT PHOTO APP

    Hello,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    The Photos app brings together pictures from all your devices using OneDrive, so that you can browse them by date, album or folder. It also automatically enhances photos, and creates albums for you, to showcase your best shots.

    I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if it helps:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to change the Default apps in the setting app and verify the result. You may follow the steps in the below:

    • Go to settings and system.
    • Click on Default Apps and select the appropriately.

    Method 2:

    I suggest you to reinstall Photo app using the PowerShell command
    and reinstall using the Windows store. Follow the below steps.

    • Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell in the search bar.
    • Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
    • Enter the below command to uninstall the Photo app.

    •   get-appxpackage  *Microsoft.Windows.Photos* | remove-appxpackage

  4. Photo App wont start on Win 10

    Photos are opening with Paint instead of Photos app

    Hello,

    It's likely that your default application for opening photos is Paint. To change your default program in Windows 10 from
    Paint to the Photo app, we suggest that you perform the following steps:

    • On the Start menu, select Settings.
    • Go to System, then go to Default apps.
    • Select Photos or any app that you like to be the default under
      Photo viewer.

    Update us if the steps above helped you in resolving your concern.
