  1. Photos App


    How do you paste a photo into the Photos App like you can do with MS Paint.

    When I right click on an image from the internet, I have the option to copy the image to the clipboard until I paste it into MS Paint; but how do I paste it into the Photos App.

    If it can't be done, then I guess it is obvious why no one wants to see MS Paint go.

    I already saved the MS Paint.exe and the en-US folder with the .mui file for MS Paint in case Microsoft makes it go bye bye.......so I'm not too worried if there isn't a way to paste an image into the Photos App.

    As far as I could tell, in the settings for the Photos App, there was only the option to select folders that you want added. But I want to know how to paste from the clipboard to the Photos App.

    I know how to save a screen-shot to the Photos App; but that isn't what I'm after. I want to be able to paste an image from the clipboard into the Photos App so I can start editing it right away instead of having to save the image only to have to reopen it to edit it with the same program.

    :)

  2. 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.

  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

    More reference:

    Photos App

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild


    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done Photos App :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.
