    Not sure if this has already be mentioned but installing MS Essentials 2012 with Photo Gallery does very much what the Windows Photo Viewer once did. You can then select Open With ... Photo Gallery. I know MS Essentials 2012 is a little old now, but it works

    As mentioned before the MS Photos app does the same thing, Open with ... Photos

    That said the original Windows Photo Viewer was simple and good

    For the Original Poster


    I love you original poster! Thanks for posting this information! Windows Photo Viewer is WAY better for desktops (non-tablets). So happy to have it back. You rock! Created just an account to say thank you

    I can't locate the .exe file for Photo Viewer. How do you make a shortcut to start it directly?

    Hello Steve,

    Windows Photo Viewer doesn't have an .exe file, It's run by dllhost.exe COM Surrogate instead. It needs to be opened as the default program from the file.

Solved Is Windows Photo Viewer gone?
I noticed a few builds ago (maybe 10162) that you could no longer set Windows Photo Viewer as the default picture opener. Now, it seems that MS is forcing you to use the Photos "app" instead. Is anyone else getting this issue?
