  1. Photos will not open in photo app but will in all other apps - already JPEG


    Photos will not open in photo app but will in all other apps - already in JPEG form. I can even attach to emails but the regular photo viewer will not open them it says file location can not be found....but every other application can locate them just fine. This occurs on photos from a card and already on the computer. Brand new computer that came with windows 10 already installed.

    :)

  2. Open with another app 'photos'


    When you choose photos and select 'open with' it gives a selection of apps. In the list I see the apps but one that looks odd is labelled %1 and has a generic app icon. It's almost as if it's some kind of old or broken program that doesn't exist. All the other programs like paint and photos are in the list as they should be but this is a rogue one. Does anyone else see this?

  3. 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.

    Open with another app 'photos'


    I've just checked my own and for comparison this is what appears when selecting open with for a .jpg photo file:

    Photos will not open in photo app but will in all other apps - already JPEG [​IMG]


    If I select an image file which doesn't have associations set such as a GIMP .xcf file I see an open with... and clicking this gets to the alternative windows apps selection box:


    Photos will not open in photo app but will in all other apps - already JPEG [​IMG]


    Photos will not open in photo app but will in all other apps - already JPEG [​IMG]


    I wonder if this gives you a clue to what your missing app should be?
