    Browse Folder with the new Photo application


    Hello
    One of the most useful feature of the previous Photo viewer ist that it easaly allow to browse all the images in the folder where any image was opened

    This feature seems to have diasapear in Windows 10 so on every machine installed with Windows 10 I replace the default application to open image by the old Photo viewer

    But I do not really understand why Microsofr is replacing very usefull application by new and removing very useful feature
    So for now I do not see many improvement for new apps around Windows 10
    Paint .NET +Photo Viewer is much better that the new MS Photo
    Thunderbird is much better that the ridiculous new Microsoft Mail
    Configuring Chrome is much easier than Edge etc..

    Am I wrong ?

    Hello olibara,

    If you like, you can restore Windows Photos Viewer to use in Windows 10.

    Me neither, but,
    basically, MS is aiming for an Operating System where all your content is perpetually live, perpetually synced, perpetually accessible and perpetually shareable, anytime, anywhere; henceforth the apps.

    Yes you wrong Give me the new Windows Mail anytime for one you can bring all your e-mail addresses into one.
    I have 4 different e-mail address but I only have to click on one to read all my mail because it has a link button,
    Also if you delete your e-mail, and then want it back you can do so, by clicking the delete undo button on the bottom of the link,
