    WINDOWS 10

    I've tried the activation of WINDOWS VIEWER as default, without success. The starting point, in my case, is a clean WINDOWS 10 installation. Even thought I've been following the instructions (look at Edwin code), updating Registry sucessfully, the WINDOWS VIEWER doesn't appears like an option to be selelected as default under configuration menus.

    Any suggestion?

    Thanks in advance.

    No, it is not part of the Windows Essentials which includes Windows Photo Gallery. It is not the same program.

    Windows Photo Viewer is part of Windows 7 operating system. It was taken off in Windows 10.
    The link you have will restore it onto Windows 10.
    It works as I have tried it myself.

    Thanks, this is quite a relief. I can't believe MS is forcing people to use their "apps".

    Also, what exactly does your registry fix do?
    Hi, I am not able to put the reg file into my system for some reason. Here is what I did:
    1. Copied entire thing into a notepad file.
    2. Saved that file as WPV.reg into my hard drive.
    3. Tried to double click and install in into my system.
    4. It gave an error saying: "The specified file is not a registry script. You can only import binary registry files within the registry editor."
    Screenshot of the error is attached below.
    Plz help!!

    Win 10 rs1 - build 14393.1944

    Try Right-click the .reg file and choose "Merge" - then it will merge in the Reg. editor, providing the code is right!
