    How to bring back Photo Viewer Behaviour in Win 10


    Hi guys, I just want to ask whether it is possible to bring back a certain behaviour from win 7,8 on Photo Viewer to win 10.

    From the image I uploaded, Win 7-8 would open all images on selected items+selected folders(wallpaper and zGa Jelas) on the photo viewer. Now on win 10, I didn't expect that this feature would be removed. Is there a way to bring this behaviour back?

    I'm sorry if my wording isn't right or this has been asked before. Thank you.

    EDIT: I've updated my laptop from Win 8. So I already have Win photo viewer.

    Hello @lumine99, welcome to tenforums.com!

    Yes but, you would need to right click on a single image first to get the 'Preview' option from the right click context menu; 'Preview' will not appear when right clicking on a folder only.

    As an alternative, you could right click a folder(s) and choose 'Play with Windows Media Player', that will play the entire folder(s) as a slideshow within WMP.

    Uhh I want to open all photos selected AND all photos on the folders. I know that right click+ preview would work on single image. But based on the scenario that I've uploaded there isn't a preview option.

    As of WMP, it works, but I can't use zoom in/zoom out. Though it kinda works. But will it work on zipped images?

    Select a number of items/folders, right click on the single image, choose Preview, then you will be able to view those selected items including the items in the folders only. (but starting with the single images)

    That did it for me as opposed to the registry key the (otherwise great site) HowToGeek tout on their page.

    It didn't do anything for me. Other than help add to the registry clutter as if it weren't bad enough as it is.

    PS: forgot to say thanks... and I don't like to appear a lout. Hence the red face. Because I treasure advice that helps and that someone, (a complete stranger at that) has taken the time to investigate and post a reply expecting nothing in return but kudos if it helped. And because...
