    By pressing edit, you have a lot more features that weren't available on the old viewer.
    I'm starting to like it.
    The Photos app was unusable for me, see my post about the image quality being blurry:
    Pictured Are Blurry in Windows 10 Photos App

    Also, you can't even click a button to view photos at 100% original size.

    This will then give you the option to use Windows Photo Viewer when you select "open with"
    Can't seem to get this to work for some reason. It states that "the specified file is not a registry script."

    It's now Photos (a Metro / modern GUI type app) - and IMO is far better than the old photoviewer app. Launch it from the Tiles on the Menu.

    You CAN pin it to the desktop if you don't want to launch from the Menu -- it's a bit involved to do it but it's do-able, I'll Post later.

    Ms Paint still works (Just type Paint anywhere in the menu area) or you could install Irfanview (free).

    Cheers

    I agree completely. The slide in/slide out effect gives me a headache,too, when flicking through images.

    Basically this is a good app but because of the scrolling action (instead of simply replacing the image) it's unusable for searching in a pile of images. To turn this effect off, go to "Settings" > "Easy of Access" and select the tab "Other options". There you can disable "Play animations in Windows". Of course, this will disable all UI animations, but I can live with that drawback.

    Alternatively, I'd like there was OS X "Preview" on Windows...but I have yet to meet the Windows feature fairy...
