  1. Windows Photos not working


    On my desktop, Windows Photos opens into a black screen and then immediately closes. On my Surface laptop and on my wife's desktop (identical to mine), Windows Photos opens so that one can view old photos, but when one tries to import new photos from either my or my wife's iPhones, Windows Photos begins to import them ("300 photos found" -- or whatever number) but the system then freezes.


    I have tried repairing Windows Photos, Resetting Windows Photos, and uninstalling and reinstalling it. None of these attempts have helped.


    Because Windows Photos isn't functional across three separate computers, I'm assuming it may be a problem caused by a recent update, but from what research I've done on-line I've not seen reports of anyone else having similar problems.


    Your suggestions would be welcome.


    Bill
