    Unable to open .svg files with Microsoft Photos

    Unable to select Microsoft Photos app for .svg file association when using the Open With context menu

    So I tried installing ownership context menu to actually access the Microsoft Photos app, which pointed to the directory, C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\

    But there is no exe in that folder, and it seems when checking task manager and opening file location of the Microsoft Photos app when it's open, it points to a created folder inside the above folder. So it creates an individual folder each time the application is open.

    The option isn't under Settings \ System \ Default Apps \ Choose default application by file type

    Again, I run into the same problem without being able to select the application when trying to choose based on the .svg extension.

    So there is no way of selecting the Microsoft Photos app to associate with .svg

    So I'm kinda out of ideas here, assistance / thoughts appreciated

    Try using Open With and select your browser to open .svg files.

Open with another app 'photos'
When you choose photos and select 'open with' it gives a selection of apps. In the list I see the apps but one that looks odd is labelled %1 and has a generic app icon. It's almost as if it's some kind of old or broken program that doesn't exist....
