    I am very annoyed at Microsoft deleting Windows Photo Viewer from my computer (presumably after a "silent" update of Windows) without asking me or even a warning me. I was, as often, in the middle of a big job simply viewing photos one after the other by right-clicking Windows Viewer's right arrow, so I could then copy some chosen ones by File > Copy to a separate folder for later attention and then be immediately back to Windows Photo Viewer's window and carrying on selecting.

    Windows Photo Viewer allows this selection from a long list in a folder to be done easily and quickly without loading each image into a software which is what Photos.App requires.

    I can't find a way to do this anything as simply in Photos.app (without loading each image into it) but if someone knows otherwise please tell me.

    When Windows Photo viewer disappears again, as it will on a later update, I will need to go to this trouble of re-installing Windows Photo Viewer every time. NOT pleased.

    In the meantime, if Microsoft are watching, please keep Windows Photo Viewer in Windows.

    Thanks.

    Sorry, gotta shout the praises of QTTabBar once again!
    Very powerful program! It's become indispensable for me!

    I don't think Microsoft will return Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10 again, they try to make you abandon "legacy" desktop applications and use the new apps instead. They should know that "legacy" applications are way better that the newer apps and I like their colorful user interface (Windows 7 style). The new apps only use a single color and very simple (child-like) graphics and look crap. No worries, just double-click on the reg file to restore Windows Photo Viewer after upgrading to any new Windows 10 build.

    I have tried this, and it doesn't work. Windows Photo Viewer doesn't show up in default apps.

    I have Windows 1903.
