    Reinstall Apps Windows 10 Specifically the Photos app

    I followed the instructions on this post, Option 2 for Microsoft Photos.
    Reinstall and Re-register Apps in Windows 10

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *Photos*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"

    + ~
    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (=:String) [ ], CommandNotFoundException

    Thank you!

    Download and install from Store.

    (But I wouldn't bother ... much better 3rd party freeware programs to view/handle/manage image files ... Irfanview to start with)
