    Unable to open pictures


    Hello, good day to you! I am currently using window 7 I think it is 7 but I am not sure how to check on a DELL laptop. I am not sure if I clicked on something wrong or it is because this laptop is old, but I am unable to open all of my pictures.Whenever I try to open a picture, it says that the file is damaged or it is too big so Windows picture viewer is unable to open it. or in Korean, ' Windows .'So, I sent one of my pictures from this laptop to my email and tried to open it on another laptop probably a window 10. However, I am still unable to open

    :)

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.

    Can't open pictures

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are getting error when trying to open Pictures on your computer. I'll certainly assist you with the issue.



    However, please let us know:



    • May I know the default application that is set to open pictures?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 is installed on the computer?



    It could be possible that the application set to open pictures is not working properly. If Photos app is set as the default application to open
    pictures, I would suggest you to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the article

    Fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store
    .



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Aloha,

    Thanks for the suggestions but I have already done everything listed. Nothing is giving me back access to my pictures. I can enter the files but the pictures will not open.

    Mahalo,
