    If you can't get it to work, maybe this one can help out. A really nice photo program.

    PS - No idea how it got to that funny shortcut, but it works.

    Hi, If you don't have a relevant system restore point, and you haven't started to use disk imaging (really really useful to restore your system to a previously working state pretty quickly) there's a lengthy but very useful procedure for fixing many problems.

    If you're really desperate for Photos to work - and if one app doesn't, could be sthg else doesn't work - probably the way to fix it- albeit huge sledgehammer approach- is this (it takes up to 2 hours excluding download time):

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    The Power shell command that used to fix these apps hasn't worked correctly since build 10580 in Nov.

    But as whs says, there are plenty of alternatives.
    Depends if when you check other universal apps other things are broken and you think it's worth the effort.
