    Photos can't be assessed


    Recent problem: when I go to photo library and click on a photo, I get the error message "element not found". Also noticed that the photo tile is not turned on and when I prompt to turn it on, nothing happens. Help appreciated.

    "Element not found" means the default program to open your photos can't be found. Did you change it to anything?

    If not try resetting your default apps (Settings > System > Default Apps > Reset ) and then reinstall/repair them as described here Apps - Reinstall and Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 - Windows 10 Forums
