  1. Windows Photo Viewer freezes up when opening an image 2004 update


    So I updated to the 2004 update, now when opening an image gif, jpg, png etc. with Windows Photo Viewer, Windows Photo Viewer just freezes up can't scroll to next image, Screen is blank when opening a static image or just freezes on the first frame if opening a gif. It takes about 25 seconds before it is usable.
    The images are stored on a Samsung 970 Evo NVME drive. CPU and RAM usage are pretty much idle.
    CPU: Ryzen 7 2700x 4.25GHz OC, RAM: 16GB DDR-4 3400Mhz OC
    Any ideas of what might be causing it?

    How to open multiple images in same instance of Photo Viewer?


    Wow, thanks a lot for replying so quickly! In other forums I sometimes have to wait for days for a reply Windows Photo Viewer freezes up when opening an image 2004 update :)

    I also have Builld 10240 and Windows Photo Viewer is already set as my default program for all picture formats.
    Stepping through all images in a folder works for me but sometimes I only want to select just a few images in a folder (by clicking on each image while holding down CTRL) and step through this selection in Windows Photo Viewer. When I select 5 images in a folder that contains 100 images and I hit enter, 5 instances of Windows Photo Viewer open up.
    Edwin, did I get this right that on your PC this operation only opens one instance of Photo Viewer?

    PS: Since English isn't my mother tongue, maybe sometimes my explanations aren't that easy to follow. Please bear with me *Redface

    Rather than use Photos I changed the Open with to Windows Photo Viewer then double-clicking a file in Pictures opened in Windows Photo Viewer which let me click the arrow to step through all the images in that Folder.
