Windows 10: Photos app, I can see the old adjustments but only for a moment. Solved

    Photos app, I can see the old adjustments but only for a moment.


    I was using the Photos app to make some minor edits to a batch of photos when I noticed something odd happening.

    When switching from 'Enhance' to 'Adjust', I can see the much missed Contrast, Exposure, Highlights, and Shadows sliders, in between the 'Light' and 'Colour' sliders, and then they disappear. If I'm quick, I can move a slider and its effect persists even after they disappear!
    I only noticed this since the Creators Update.

    It's as if the programmers were told to remove these options and they took the route of simply hiding them from view instead! Is there any hope that they may reappear again...?

    They are all still there, but the menu is collapsed by default. Click on the '>' to the left of 'Light' to expand them. 'Colour' also has a number of options available this way.

    Thanks - I guess many users are happier now. Well, those that know about this U-turn. Or is it just me....?

    I must admit I wouldn't have thought of clicking the '>'.

    I note that 'selective focus' is no more, it's as if Microsoft wants to 'punish' users for making it reinstate these controls by leaving one out.
