Windows 10: Windows 10 will not open PDF or JPEG files

    Windows 10 will not open PDF or JPEG files


    Hi there

    I upgraded to W10 this morning, and since then, although everything seems to be OK, it will not open any PDF or JPEG files. I get an error message for the JPEG something like, " illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion"

    For the PDF files it says, "invalid value for registry".

    As all of my work files are in PDF format, this is a headache

    many thanks

    Try right clicking on a file and choose 'Open with->Choose another app' and select, or browse to, the app you want to use.

    This should replace the corrupted registry values.

    Hi there

    Many thanks Nus, that has solved the issue. I just needed to click the box to use Windows Picture Viewer as the default app to open and view the photos.
