  1. Unable to write on photos opened in Camera app


    (Surface Pro 5) I used to be able to write directly on the photos I've taken when selecting from the preview (camera roll) image in the camera app. I could scroll through the camera roll and write on photos as I needed to. Now I cannot write on the pics opened through that method. I have to open my "Photos" folder, open the photo I want to edit, then save and close. I now have to do this for up to 200 photos per day. This really makes for a long day and cuts productivity to about a third. Any ideas as to how I can get this function back?

    Missing apps: Store, People, Photos, Games & Camera on upgrading to 10


    Thanks for replying spunk. That's the 'alphabetical' list I was referring to, none of these apps are in that 'All apps' list. Any more suggestions?

    Choose default photo viewer app to open from Windows Camera

    History: I recently began getting errors when trying to open images in the default Microsoft Photos app. It turned out I'm not the only one with the problem and I'm not the only one who is unable to solve it, so I installed a different app to view photos (IrfanView). (There is an app but one can also install it as a program.)

    Problem: When I open Windows Camera, as usual the last photo I took is shown at the bottom right of the screen. When clicking it, the photo used to be opened in Microsoft Photos. But since that app doesn't work anymore (in fact I removed it in powershell) I want Windows Camera to open the photo in a different app (IfranView). How can I do this?

    I set IrfanView as the default photo viewer, but that doesn't help.

    When I try to open a photo in Windows Camera, I'm asked to choose an app from the Microsoft store, but there appears to be no way to actually select an app. It just opens the store and that's it. After that, I get the error
