Windows 10: How do I remove Windows Photo Gallery?

    How do I remove Windows Photo Gallery?


    Best I can determine Windows Photo Gallery is part of Windows Essentials. But, I cannot remove Windows Essentials without removing Movie Maker which I use. So, how can I remove Photo Gallery and only Photo Gallery?

    It's simple. Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features. elect Windows Essentials and you can remove selected Essentials programs (including Photo Gallery) or repair the installation.

    When I try that I get this. I interpret it to mean I will remove Movie Maker. That's why I asked how to remove Photo Gallery without removing Movie Maker.

    You are right - I have the same now I selected the option. I thought you might be able to uninstall them both then just reinstall Movie Maker. However, the Essentials 2012 installer I got from MS installs both Movie Maker and Photo Gallery. I found this MS link for Movie Maker so you could see if that installs just Movie Maker https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...maker-download A Google search shows other non MS sources for downloading Movie Maker but you might not want to trust those. I don't think this is a big deal - you could just ignore Photo Gallery since it takes up hardly any space.

    The problem is, after I upgraded to 10 every time I import images from a media (SD/camera) card it throws up an image from the card in Photo Gallery and I have to click it away each and every time.

    In that case, you need to configure your autoplay options at Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\AutoPlay

    I didn't realize that control existed. That fixed it.

    Thanks very much.
