    Defaults fail to save

    Had this issue now since the 1511 update, when i set my image viewer to windows photo viewer it was reverting back to the win 10 photo app, i removed the app,
    i even installed photo gallery as it has the same functionality as PV
    it now asks what software do i want to use to open every time i click to open a image.
    i contacted ms as a last resort to be told they could fix it in the registry at a cost, i refused on principal, i dont feel i should have to pay for what is an update issue, it worked fine since june.
    i have set the defaults in several ways including file type associations etc. each time it reverts, i can open the image in PV after setting the default, then i close the image and reopen it to be greeted to the which software do you want to use window,

    Hi, try setting the default with the 'old' control panel..
    Whilst I haven't had exactly the same experience, I found using Settings defaults did not completely succeed in associating all file types and protocols with my browser. I had to complete that using the 'old' control panel- both in 10540 and 10586 (when Edge suddenly became my default, unexpectedly).
