  1. Windows live photo gallery - screen not repainting after updating


    I have been using Windows (live) photo gallery (WLPG) for many years, even though it has long been unsupported. I've not found another tool that is as easy to use to caption and tag photos. Just recently (I suspect after a windows update) it has developed an annoying feature in that the screen does not repaint itself after updates have occurred to the content. For example, dragging and dropping the photos elsewhere or renaming files. Pressing F5 will repaint the screen but it is a pain to have to do it after every operation.
    I've searched the internet but, since the product is unsupported, have not found any recent posts that might suggest what the problem and/or solution might be. I did find a post about a similar problem with Windows File Explorer but the suggested fix does not work with WLPG.
    Any clues or suggestions?
    Thanks
    BR

    Did you get your Windows (Live) Photo Gallery by installing Windows (Live) Essentials ?
    *** Microsoft has long since removed the word "Live" from the program.
    If yes, go to Programs and Features > scroll down to Windows Essentials > right click at it > click Uninstall/Change > click Repair.

    See if Repair will fix the "crash" issue.

    Any way to get the Windows Photo Viewer & Windows Live Photo Gallery?


    Windows (Live) Photo Gallery comes with Windows Essentials as a package. ( MS has removed the word "Live" ).
    Do you have Windows Essentials installed ?
    The package includes Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Writer, OneDrive.
