    Windows Photos app hangs trying to view images


    Sometimes it takes a while to open an image. Sometimes opens but doesn't have any image. Just shows blank black background. Sometimes it opens the image. Usually working with .jpg and .png files. It started happening fairly recently. It worked fine before. I need to close and open it a couple of times before I get it to work.

    Windows version: 1909 (OS Build 18363.959).

    :)
