    Windows 11 suddenly opens all photos in "Paintbrush Picture" which I do not want.


    I attempted to change the default app for photos which was explained in earlier 1918, etc. posts. However the solution seems to be different in Windows 11. Even older photos now show in File Explorer as Paintbrush. Another note is that I use Google Photo but it has worked fine in the past. I just noted this problem within the past few weeks. Thanks for any help. Tom Parks, Sacramento, CA

    Unable to insert COM object as picture

    In Windows 10 I am unable to insert object as picture. It shows only icon.

    To reproduce the issue:

    1. Open for example wordpad or any other application which supports object embedding.
    2. Choose insert object.
    3. choose insert from file
    4. Choose any jpeg picture.
    5. File is inserted but shows as icon only. This is regression from Windows 7 as previously it was possible to insert directly as picture.

    Workaround is to insert Paintbrush object then open image and copy paste in paintbrush but it is very inconvienent. It seems the crappy Microsoft Photos app is interfering with this but not sure how to uninstall it.
