    Windows 11 restarts whenever I open the Photos app.


    To summarize, my month-old desktop computer has been shutting off and resetting every time I open the Photos app. I have tried to disable the automatic restart function in the Startup and Recovery section, opening the CMD prompt and typing gpupdate and chkdsk c:. I have also gone into the app settings to repair and reset the photos app, however the result is the same. The app will open and I will see the few photos I have imported, then the entire computer will click off and the OS will restart. It does not log me off but return me to the empty desktop. The drivers are updated to the best of m

  2. Photos are opening with Paint instead of Photos app

    Hello,

    It's likely that your default application for opening photos is Paint. To change your default program in Windows 10 from
    Paint to the Photo app, we suggest that you perform the following steps:

    • On the Start menu, select Settings.
    • Go to System, then go to Default apps.
    • Select Photos or any app that you like to be the default under
      Photo viewer.

    Update us if the steps above helped you in resolving your concern.
