    Getting Pop-Up "You'll need a new app to open this About"

    I get this pop-up often when i click or right click on items:
    You'll need a new app to open this about.
    Look for an app in the Store

    Always use this app


    When I click on the first option I get "Your search for "about" had no results."
    When I click on "Always use this app" nothing happens.

    What is happening?

    The app is Quick GMail. When I click on a photo image the pop-up comes on the screen.
    If I open GMail from the web it opens the picture in a separate window

    Sounds like photo app isn't set as default photo app. Or the quick Gmail is faulty on windows 10.
