    Current tutorial – Photos – Albums – Windows 10

    I’ve found a couple of videos:.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jkqa4EmYcQY
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYV0I58krN8
    but in both cases, the “Albums” feature was not yet working when they were created.
    Can anyone give me a link to a video tutorial that was created after the Albums feature was fixed…………working now?

    Yes, registry manipulating script is maybe only one way, I tried written in post before your and nothing helped.
    Sure is that it must to be possible 'cause if it works when are file associations default, then it's not impossible!

    Hi All,
    Could you please help:
    I am able to open Windows 10 Photos using below code, I do not know how to open a particular image (using image name)

    private static void OpenSamplePhoto()
    {
    string samplePicturesFolder = Path.Combine(Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments), "Sample_Pictures");
    string picturePath = Path.Combine(samplePicturesFolder, "sample1.JPG");

    ProcessStartInfo info = new ProcessStartInfo();
    info.FileName = @"ms-photos://";
    info.UseShellExecute = true;
    info.CreateNoWindow = true;
    info.Verb = string.Empty;

    Process.Start(info);
    }

    Hi, a basic clue- universal apps as you know do not use exe files, nor do they take parameters.

    Hello,
    Could you please help:
    I am able to open a particular image with below code, however I am NOT able to navigate to Next or Previous image using buttons from that particular image ("sample1.JPG"),

    I request your help: I am sure, why the Next and Previous buttons are disabled.

    private static void OpenSamplePhoto()
    {
    string samplePicturesFolder = Path.Combine(Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments), "Sample_Pictures");

    string picturePath = Path.Combine(samplePicturesFolder, "sample1.JPG");

    ProcessStartInfo info = new ProcessStartInfo();
    info.WorkingDirectory = samplePicturesFolder;
    info.FileName = @Path.Combine("ms-photos://", picturePath);
    info.UseShellExecute = true;
    info.CreateNoWindow = true;
    info.Verb = string.Empty;

    Process.Start(info);
    }

    with the start command :)


    Hi,

    This thread is quite old, but I'm just discovering the"start" command:

    • start ms-photos: to launch the application
    • start <myphoto.jpg>: to display the file with the default application


    it works also for any registered type of files (like open in *nix) !
