  1. Windows 10 Photos app


    Hello to everyone!

    First of all I'd like to apologize if it's not the right place to post my question.

    I don't like Windows 10 photos app at all, but I use it only to transfer quickly my photos from my camera memory card to my computer. I have managed to select the folder where the photos must be transferred, but the app automatically put the date where they were taken as a title. It's fine, but the date is written like in USA, that is year, month, day. I'd like, if possible to have it written as we are familiar to dates in Europe, that is year, day, month. Could you tell me if it's possible and how? Thank you.

    Then another question, how could I delete from the app all the automatic albums and everything, without deleting all the pictures from my hard disk?

    I have my own created folders for my photos and, as said above, I use photos app only for transferring photos from my camera.

    Thank you again in advance for your help.

    :)

    I suggest you to change the Default apps in the setting app and verify the result. You may follow the steps in the below:

    • Go to settings and system.
    • Click on Default Apps and select the appropriately.

    Method 2:

    I suggest you to reinstall Photo app using the PowerShell command
    and reinstall using the Windows store. Follow the below steps.

    • Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell in the search bar.
    • Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
    • Enter the below command to uninstall the Photo app.
