    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 Removal of desktop photo :) 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.

    Windows 10 Photo App unable to sync photos


    I realize that you face difficulty with photos app. I will certainly help you.

    To assist you better, let us know whether you are using same Microsoft account to login to the Windows photo app on both laptop and Desktop.

    If not I suggest you to use same Microsoft account to log-in both laptop and desktop.

    Then sign out of the photos app and restart the system. Then login again into Windows photo app and check.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to remove and re-add the source location within the windows photo app. Please follow below steps to change the source location.

    • Type photos in search bar and press enter.

    • Then click on settings (gear icon) in photos app and under
      sources section add the path where photos are saved.
    Please get back to us if you still face any difficulty with photos app.

    Thank you.
