Bring back best old windows photos and fax viewer in Windows 10
How to get Windows Photo Viewer back in Windows 10 (Home / Pro / Education)
Windows 10 has a bunch of new apps, including a new Photos app. I HATE the Photos app, it sucks. Slow & sluggish as hell. Here is the solution to bring back old Windows Photo Viewer.
If upgraded from Windows 7, 8 or 8.1
simply open up Settings and go to System > Default apps. Under "Photo viewer," you should see your current default photo viewer (probably the new Photos app). Click this to see a list of options for a new default photo viewer. Assuming you upgraded to Windows 10 from a previous version of Windows, you should see Windows Photo Viewer as an option.
Choose Windows Photo Viewer and exit the Settings menu, and you're done
If installed Windows 10 from scratch
- Clone or Download this repository
2. Double Click "enable_photo_viewer.reg" file 3. If there are some UAC prompt , just click yes. (Don't worry its's completely safe) 4. You're done. 5. Right click on any jpg/png/gif file, Click "Open With" > Click "Choose Another App" > Scroll through the list of apps / software > Click "More Apps"
- Choose "Windows Photo Viewer"
- DONE ✌
