  1. Windows Photo App missing arrows after last update

    Windows 10 Photos app no forward or backward arrows

    Tried out the Photos app a few days ago: each day, forward-backward arrows missing. In any photo folder, the same problem.

    Tried resetting Photos (%appdata%\..\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Photos_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState and deleting folder contents).

    Ran scannow, no problem found.

    Opened photos on my laptop and the arrows are present.

    Suggestions? I hope, short of reinstalling Windows on this machine.

    Missing apps: Store, People, Photos, Games & Camera on upgrading to 10

    Thanks for replying spunk. That's the 'alphabetical' list I was referring to, none of these apps are in that 'All apps' list. Any more suggestions?

  4. Windows Photo App missing arrows after last update

    Photos direction arrows not showing

    Hi Rafg,

    We appreciate you for being a part of Windows 10.

    Before proceeding, we need more information to help you better.


    • Since when you are facing this issue with Photos app?

    • How many photos are present in the subfolder from where you are trying to open Photos through Photos app? (Inside the My pictures sub folder)
    Please be informed that if you have only one photo in the subfolder from where you are trying to open the photos in File explorer, you will not see the direction arrows in the Photos app to view the next picture in the Photos app.

    If you have multiple pictures in the subfolder from where you are trying to open the photos in File explorer, then follow the below steps and check if you are able to view the right and left directions in the Photos app to view the pictures.

    Step 1:

    I suggest you to run the Windows app troubleshooter and check if you are able to fix the issue with Photos app.

    Run the troubleshooter for Windows apps

    Fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store

    If the issue still persists, follow the below step.

    Step 2:

    You may try to uninstall the apps which came inbuilt with Windows 10 using Windows PowerShell and reinstall using Windows store. Follow the below steps to uninstall and reinstall the Photos app.


    • 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 reinstall the Photos app.

      get-appxpackage *Microsoft.Windows.Photos* | remove-appxpackage
    Note: After performing the above steps, install the Photos app form the Windows store.

    You may try to open the photos app and check if the issue persist.

    I hope the above information helps. Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
