    Preview Image not in Context Menu


    Hi,

    After updating to Windows 10, I find that the Preview button in the context menu is no longer visible as it once was in 8(.1). Is there a way to re-enable this? I mainly open my image files using something like Paint.Net and I also need to view previews of images when I program as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    The preview button opened Windows Photo Viewer which has been deprecated in Windows 10, replaced with the Photos app, but you can restore it. Follow the instructions here, and the Windows Photo Viewer will appear in the Open With context menu option. Is Windows Photo Viewer gone? - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

    Is it possible to then make the command work with the new Photos app? I'd rather not use the depreciated WPV (in the event a future update to 10 removes it).

    As far as I know, there is no way to add a custom context menu item for the Photos app, but it would be very unlikely that an update would remove Windows Photo Viewer.
