    How do I delete a corrupt MS Windows Photos


    Windows 10 Home v 21H2, OS build 19044.2846
    Dell XPS 8940 Tower 10th gen Intel Core i7-10700
    Dell XPS58940-7262BLK-PUS

    I've tried Repair, Reset and Terminate and MS Windows Photos is still locking up.
    I would like to Uninstall and Reload the app but the Uninstall is greyed out.

    Help please!

    bro67,

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Please clarify, I don't know what Revo means.

    RevoUninstaller (freeware version)

    - download and install
    - select the Windows Apps tab
    - double click on the program
    - run the uninstall. For Windows apps, Revo will automatically look for left files/folders/registry entries.
    Delete them ALL

    If prompted, don't bother with the restore point.

    Note : no matter what you want to do with no matter what program, if it involves a change to your system ... even a simple uninstalling of a program ... it is wise to create an image of your system. Use Macrium Reflect to create the image to an external drive. At the same time, don't forget to create a Macrium boot USB to be able to recover your (old) system if required.

    And then when you've successfully removed this functionally deficient MS offering, download and install Irfanview (freeware), a far more superior and manageable image management program.
