    Yes if i were to change the default app to vlc the icon will change to the vlc icon.
    but they are image file VLC is a music/video player , choose another image viewer ,and if you did what you said in your last post ,then I think you are likely stuck with what you got ,,no restore point ,no where to go but maybe a repair install of windows

    I fixed it by reinstalling the windows 10 photos app by running this in an elevated powershell then changing it to the default photo viewer app.
    Get-AppXPackage *Photos* -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
