    Want more info on randomly appearing desktop photos


    In my search for a forum addressing this, I only found people wanting to be rid of the pics. I don't want to get rid of them; I just want to know where the pics were taken. I cannot right click on them for info because they're in my locked screen. Once I unlock it with my password, the image is gone.
    Unlike what I've seen in other threads complaining about the pics, there is no "do you like this?"
    On occasion, but not usually, something pops up about the photo but it's tiny and there for only a couple of seconds, so, if I don't see it immediately, I only catch a few words and can't retrieve that info.
    Today, e.g., there is a photo of a wildly curved and meandering river, surrounded by green pastures.

    :)

    GPUz Incorrect Info GF117

    I've got the GT620M in a Zenbook and the newest version of GPUz has it listed as a 40nm part whereas all other info on the web suggests its 28nm. Can you investigate, W1z?

    Thanks

    Controlling which photos appear on the photo tile

    Hi,

    To resolve the issue, we would suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • Press “Windows key”, right click on Photo app
    • Click “Turn Live tile off
    • Now open the “Photo app”, click on “settings” in the left pane
    • Add photos folder in the sources that you want to view on the tile
    • In the “photo tile” option, click on “recent photos
    • Close the current window, again press “Windows key”
    • You should be able to see the selected images now

    Hope this helps. Do get back to us should you need further assistance.

    Regards.

    Want more info on randomly appearing desktop photos

    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 Want more info on randomly appearing desktop photos :) 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.
