    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 Poll: When browsing through folder having images using default Photos app, does Shell... :) 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.

    Unable to replace Photos app with Photo Viewer as default (10240).


    I'm not making any headway on answers.Microsoft.com so I'm hoping the experts here can explain why I cannot replace the Photos app with Windows Photo Viewer as the default image viewer (in build 10240). From all outward appearances, it seems Windows Photo Viewer is unavailable.

    The saga is explained in detailed words and colorful pictures here:
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/i...2-83ece717ddfb

    If that's too tl;dr for you, here are the bullet points:

    • Windows Photo Viewer is never listed as an option when using "Open with".
    • "Open with" lets you browse the disk and manually select the desired program. I navigated to "\Program Files\Windows Photo Viewer" but it contains no program there other than "Imaging Devices" (wrong). Choosing "PhotoViewer.dll" produces an error message.
    • In Control Panel's "Default Program", Windows Photo Viewer is shown to be associated with TIF files and nothing else. Attempts to set JPG to use Windows Photo Viewer fail because, again, its program folder only contains "Imaging Devices" (and the dll).


    In an attempt to fix this problem, I used the "nuclear option" and Reset the PC. After Windows 10 (TH1 10240) reinstalled itself, I still couldn't select Windows Photo Viewer to be the default image viewer.

    Suggestions to fix this?

    Photos stutters too much browsing the phone images

    Since few weeks ago Windows 10 can't browse images on my phone, it is able to open one then it freezes and even file explorer has a hard time switching to other folder because of that stuttering. When stuttering is over and I close the already bugged photos window that may display 'sorry photos can't open this file because the format is currently unsupported or corrupted', or it may just show a blank pure white window on the Photos app instead of displaying the image.

    I have always used Windows Photo Viewer for older phone to browse png and Photos to view JPG images usually screenshots directly placed on my phone. I do not want to copy all images that I generate to the computer, I want to browse them the way I have always used, just with arrows switches and loads next image. delete image after view and so on. I have done that many times.

    The idea of these apps is that they can browse your pictures in a folder of your phone like Pictures/Screenshots and open one, then see the rest without it creating a copy of the image on some hidden local PC folder.

    That's a 2020 oneplus phone and if the cable is the problem, I can say I have tried:

    - the data reads fine, in fact if I dont click to browse an image, I can browse the folders and copy/paste/cut just fine
    - but if it stutters on image then everything even cut and paste file on PC malfunctions
    - changing cable USB type C, to another, the problem does not go away
    - change the USB port like 3.0 to 2.0. same issue
    - I have tried doing that at work, taking one of the cables that I used and there browsing the images with Photos on my phone does not have that problem. That makes me think it is not the phone
    - In power Shell uninstalled/installed the Photos app, installed and removed from Microsoft Store
    - DISM.exe no issues found

    images are 2300x1000 but that never had a problem. I would use Windows Photo Viewer but it can read older phone PNG screenshots but cannot read these large file JPGs.

    I display files as Details, no list or thumbnails

    I have erased Media cache on phone (again why look for problem on phone if it works fine on another laptop), power on/off phone, unplugged cable on different days

    USB File Transfer is on, without it it wouldn't see the files.

    Unplugging the device creates 10+ 'The device has stopped responding or has been disconnected' messages, why they queued so many?
