    I am a Microsoft user not a technician. How am I supposed to follow all those instructions to eliminate al those photos that slow down my browser? I do not want them and do now know how to get rid of them. Why have them there anyway. If I want lessons in geography I'll just check other sources. Just leave the page clear so I can get on to my work and research.

    :)

  2. Slow Browser

    Hi Susan,

    To address your concern, we would like to know the following:

    • Have you already performed a speedtest for your internet connection?
    • Does your other devices experience the same slowness in browsing?
    • Have you turned off your addons on your browsers?

    For the meantime, you can perform a reset on your Internet Explorer 11 / Microsoft Edge by following the steps on this

    link
    .

    Let us know how it goes.

    Best regards.

    Photo app in Windows 10 is extremely slow

    Hi,

    We suggest that you follow the methods below and check if it helps to fix the issue:

    Method 1: Run Maintenance task.

    The Run maintenance task checks for issues that might slow down your computer. Follow the steps below:

    • Click on Start.
    • On the search bar, type Troubleshooting and click on
      Troubleshooting from the results.
    • Click on Run maintenance task under System and Security.
    Method 2: Turn off Automatically enhance my photos.

    Automatic enhancements are not saved in the file and are only applied upon viewing the photo. Turning it off may help speed up the loading of photos. Here are the steps on how to turn off enhancements:

    • Open Photos.
    • Click on the three dots on the upper right part of the app and click on
      Settings
      .
    • Under Viewing and editing, turn off Automatically enhance my photos by moving the slider.
    • If you are not using OneDrive, you can also turn off Show my cloud-only content from OneDrive.

    Let us know how it goes for us to assist you further.

    Photos slowing down browser

    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 slowing down browser :) 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.
