    Yep, already have Bill, but thank you.

    Windows Photo Viewer - Restore in Windows 10
    I should have known

    In between writing an app, helping here and other forums, and living life, I'm trying to find the entries to add the separate context menu pick for Preview (with PhotoViewer) so that it doesn't just replace open.
    It's not a high priority though. I've collected the keys from Win8 and have done some work on a reg file, but it's not there yet. Should I keep going or is that on your list of things to 'patch'

    As always - thanks for what you do Mr. Brink (Quadrant Commander? Brink)

    No need. The tut fully restores Windows Photo Viewer in Open with as well.

    Ok, Mr. Brink it is then, I don't want the fleet buzzin' my house

    Maybe I didn't explain what I was trying to do very well.

    In Win8, there are, Open, Preview, and Open with menu picks.
    The reg mod we both use replaces Open with Preview and does not preserve the open

    Let's say Paint is the default open for png images. After merging, the default open for png images is Windows Photo Viewer.
    I'd like to keep the Open pick with the default pgm Paint ... and ... and ... I'd like to have the Preview menu pick back on the context menu. Not too picky, am I?

    I'm sure it's relatively easy to do, I just haven't finished the keys and testing. Are you saying the tutorial does that? I must have missed something and will try it again.

    Anyway, this shows what I'd like to end up having - a separate Preview pick, not a pick that replaces Open.
    The capture showing Open with is only there to show that photo viewer is there, as you mentioned.

    This is NOT a Try at your own risk - it's only for discussion
    There might be additional keys needed to complete the modification.

    In other words - The above keys are NOT tested,
    members should NOT implement the ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers keys until someone confirms that it will work as intended.

    Thanks for taking the time to consider what I'm trying to accomplish.

    Bill @Slartybart,

    That doesn't seem to do anything for me, but the tutorial will have it in Open with already when restored. Give it a try and see.

    thanks Shawn, I already have the Preview (replacing Open) and the Open with.

    I looked at the reg file and it seems to be identical (except you took the time to grab the .fileassociation. keys for each type)

    I've already taken the tutorial somewhat off track, so I'll merge the tutorial .reg file the next time I boot to 10, give it a go and see what I see.

    Thanks again.

    The reg worked fine. As I expected though, the second Preview item was not added to the context menu.

    Preview replaces Open ...
    'Open with' has Windows Photo Viewer, so what I want will require a few more keys.

    What I'm trying to end up with is a Context menu that has both Open and Preview, not Open or Preview
    Open
    .
    Preview
    .
    Open with
    .
    I want to keep the Open pick (ex: Paint or Gimp) and have the Preview pick for a quick look-see or visually navigate pictures in a folder.

    I'll keep digging but again this is not high priority, more of a skunkworks project in spare time.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure if that's possible since "Preview" basically just opened the image. Having both "Open" and "Preview" may break it.

    Shawn,
    Would you know if Photo Viewer is similar to the Vista Version that had pan and zoom, a feature removed in Seven?

    Hey Rich,

    Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10 is the same as it was in Windows 8.1.

    It has zoom, next/back image, slide show, rotate, print, delete, burn, and open with options.
