    Why does Photos not look a Windows Program?


    Hello
    I sometimes use Windows Photos to edit and crop Photos.
    I would like to know why Windows have changed the whole Interface for Photos in Windows 10.
    Now the background is black and the Menus are on the top right.

    I always thought that MS enforced strict rules on software manufacturers so that all Windows programs had the same look and feel.

    What do you think?

    :)

    Why does Windows Settings look different between a Desktop & Laptop PC?

    I found one other answer on this question .. but it doesn't apply ... its the same build.

    Both Desktop and Laptop are running windows 10 pro, 1709 bver 16299.192

    Desktop shows a Cortana icon in the settings menu

    Laptop shows a "Search" icon.

    Desktop Windows Settings:

    Why does Photos not look a Windows Program?

    They do, but Photos is one of the new generation of UWP (Universal Windows Platform) Apps, introduced in Windows 8 as 'Metro' apps. This is now the standard layout for a UWP App. Compare it to some of the other Microsoft-supplied Apps such as the Store or Edge, they all have the 'three dots' menu top right.
