    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 Search Broken after v2004 Feature Update :) 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.

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?

    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?

    Search Broken after v2004 Feature Update

    Sharing folders broken after Feature update to Windows 10, ver 1709

    hi guys,

    so I was searching for the past 3 hours for a concrete solution for this... here's the scenario, I have one win10 PC and 2 win 7 PCs over Ethernet, all working decently, until today I noticed that the other win 7 comps cannot see the win 10 comp under the network... after fiddling quite a bit I came across these suggestions:

    Look for the following services in the list:

    · DNS Client
    · Function Discovery Provider Host
    · Function Discovery Resource Publication
    · Peer Networking Grouping
    · HomeGroup Provider
    · HomeGroup Listener
    · SSDP Discovery
    · UPnP Device Host

    1. I reset each of these settings FROM "Manual" TO "Automatic" one by one.

    Which actually did the trick of making the win10 machine "appear" under network list but then I cannot access the shares. tried to reset services, few other things but what makes it work is if I go under the network card and tick / untick the "File and Printer sharing for Microsoft networks", then it magically works..

    it's not great but it does the job for now.... anyone has any ideas? I can tell this happened after the Fall Update, version 16299 that I did not too long ago...

    thanks!
