    Cannot view photos in photo app


    I opened my picture library and double clicked to view photo, photo App opens and shuts immediately and then displays an error message. This happens with all photos/pictures I have tried to open!

    Cannot view photos in photo viewer-2015-08-12_19-03-28.jpg How can I view my photos/pictures in Windows 10?

    Just to clarify I sign in with a Local account, do I have to sign in with a Microsoft account to use the apps?

    There are a few other users on Google (file system error 1073545193 - Google-Suche), who have the same problem. It seems it can appear with different apps; I even found someone who had this with rundll32.exe. The fact that this error obviously can happen with different programes makes me believe this might not actually be a problem in the photo viewer, but really like the error says somewhere in the file system. Maybe running CHKDSK helps...

    Lots of photo viewer errors in my reliability chart and I haven't even opened it on this machine.

    If you like, you could restore Windows Photo Viewer, and set it as the default program to view your images with for now. :)

    Thanks Joergi for the link but Photo App did not work in Safe Mode or after running sfc /scannow as suggested in that link.
    I have now done as Brink suggested and Restored Windows Photo Viewer and now I can get to see my photos and pictures. Thanks Brink

    While it is "nice" to be able to see and access your pics again, the point is that the new Photos app should work and doesn't.

    This is only a temporary fix so what is the actual way to fix it so that it works as it should for this new shiny OS?
