    Photo app crashes after a few seconds after opening


    After installing and enjoying Windows 10 for a few weeks, I am having problems with the Photo app.
    I was able to open it up with no problems and it showed me all my pictures but I few days ago, I opened it up and it quit after a few seconds. I kept open it with the same results: it opens , acts as if it is loading some pictures but it quits by itself after about 5-7 seconds.

    If this helps, I am providing with an error report from Windows 10.

    Any help you provide, it is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your suggestion but unfortunately it did not work. I did try other solutions like uninstalling/ reinstalling the Photos app with the same result; although now the app closes/quits after about 2-3 seconds.

    I really hope Microsoft works on a solution to this headache.

    Thanks again for your reply
