    Photos having unknown start issues


    After the most recent windows update, Microsoft photos will inconsistently work.

    sometimes it works fine, sometimes it takes up to a minute to start, sometimes it starts up, but freezes in place, and doesnt respond from there. windows also never reports it as "not responding".
    i've tried sfc /scannow, chkdsk /f /r, and used HDTune to make sure nothing's wrong with my hard drive. all said nothing is wrong. edit: also tried restarting my system

    i have noticed no decrease in system disk read/write speed before and after this issue.

    :)

    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 having unknown start issues :) 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.
