    Photos App missing under certain user accounts


    My computer is joined to a on-prem domain running Windows 10 Enterprise x64, build 1709.
    My user profile is roaming with Folder Redirection enabled (by Group Policy).

    I had to recreate my roaming profile and ever since then have been having issues. First, the built-in Calculator app had disappeared. I managed to get it back by running the following PowerShell:

    Code: Get-AppxPackage -allusers *windowscalculator* | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}[/quote] 2 weeks later I noticed my default photo viewer had been reset. I tried to change the file type association of .PNG files, for example, to Photos but couldn't find it. If I switch user and log in as the local admin, I see the Photos app.

    I've tried various PowerShell commands in an attempt to get the Photos app back but am failing. Here are the commands I've tried:

    Code: Get-AppxPackage -allusers *photo* | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}[/quote] Code: Get-AppxPackage *photo* | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}[/quote] Does anyone know how I can get it back? I'm also wondering what else I've lost. I still need to find why this occurs when I delete my cached roaming profile.

    :)

    Missing apps: Store, People, Photos, Games & Camera on upgrading to 10


    Thanks for replying spunk. That's the 'alphabetical' list I was referring to, none of these apps are in that 'All apps' list. Any more suggestions?

    Windows 10 Photos App: Missing / Not Showing All Pictures

    Hi Jim,

    It's possible that some missing or corrupted system files are affecting the performance of the Photos app. As initial troubleshooting, run the

    Windows apps troubleshooter
    .

    Additionally, we suggest performing a clean boot to find out if this behavior is caused by a third-party
    program. This will load Windows with minimal drivers and programs, preventing software conflicts from occurring. If the Photos app shows the missing pictures and folders in a clean boot environment, check the section How to determine what is causing
    the problem by performing a clean boot
    for what to do next.

    Note: To return your computer back to normal, check the section How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting.

    We'd also recommend creating a new user profile to check if this is caused by a corrupted user profile. You may find the steps for doing that through this link.

    Furthermore, check if resetting the Photos app solves the problem by following these steps:

    • Click Start.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Click System.
    • Click Apps & Features.
    • Choose Photos from the list.
    • Click Advanced options.
    • Click Reset twice.
    • Restart your computer.

    Let us know if the Photos app shows the missing pictures after following these steps.
