    You don't even have to do anything like that. Just right click on the photo you want to view, choose Open With>Windows Photo Viewer. Like I said in my previous post, the Windows 7 photo viewer is still there, it hasn't been removed at all, and you certainly don't need any registry hacks to use it.
    When you upgrade from 7 to 10 that's left over but when you do a clean install of 10 the hack is needed.

    Mine doesn't have an entry for Windows Photo viewer, just says Photos which is a Store app.

    If you use the registry hack I posted it will show up. I used that when I did a clean instillation of 10.

    I am more than happy with the Store app

    edobson,
    Please have a look at this tutorial :
    Windows Photo Viewer - Restore in Windows 10

    Personally, I don't use either Photo or Windows Photo Viewer. That is because I have Windows Essentials which comes with Windows Photo Gallery. I prefer to use that instead. But that's just personal preference.

    Ah, I see. I didn't know this, apologies. I'm guessing that the update removed the old photo viewer and that's why he's getting missing DLL errors.
