    Kill Microsoft Photos (Change behavior for picture media)


    How do I change what my computer does when I plug in media -- jpegs?
    Currently Windows 10 launches the Photos app. (I never asked for this behavior!)
    Id like the computer to either launch Windows Explorer or Adobe Bridge. I dont see either of those listed as a choice when trying to assign an app by file type.

    Ive tried:
    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > type powershell > Enter.
    At the flashing prompt, copy and paste this...............................
    Get-AppxPackage *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage

    It didnt work for me.

    Thanks.

    Under "Photo Viewer" my desired choices are not listed. The only way to go off the list is by going to the App Store. Both Windows Explorer and Adobe Bridge are already on my computer.

    OK choose the listing below that Choose Default By Protocol and scroll through the list I know windows explorer is there, not sure about Bridge as I do not use it.

    I'm sorry it is the one below that Set Default By App

    Which protocol?
    For MS-PHOTOS, the only choices are Photos & Look for an app in the store.
