    That is what I meant, I have it enabled, but cannot set it as default.
    We can only wait for Microsoft's promised fix, hopefully not too long now according to the KB articles: "Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available in late November 2018."

    Still not fixed


    Got a new HP laptop and downloaded Win 10 1809 and the Photo Viewer does not work...followed all the instructions in this thread and the downloads that are suggested do not apply to my laptop.

    Any suggestions how I can get Photo viewer to work?....Or I am taking back this new laptop...wait and purchase another in 6 mos when this is fixed.

    There are better programs than Windows Photo Viewer even when it's present and working properly. I use the freebie XnView MP as my default viewer and don't have any problems in that department.

    Another tool added to my collection. Thanks! I can confirm it works with Windows 10 Pro v1809 (October 2018)

    Hmm, I didn't do that but I just checked and I was able to select WPV from the "Open With" menu.

    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?
    that helped a lot man

    I have added the reg file to my USB Flash drive and I enable Windows Photo Viewer to any Windows 10 computer I repair or build. It is far better than the new Photo app. Thanks again! I also enable the old Windows 7 calculator using Winaero's utility because the modern app is too big and ugly.
