    Is Windows Photo Viewer gone?


    I noticed a few builds ago (maybe 10162) that you could no longer set Windows Photo Viewer as the default picture opener. Now, it seems that MS is forcing you to use the Photos "app" instead.

    Is anyone else getting this issue?

    What format is that picture?

    I'm having this issue on my virtual machine installation (which I used to take the screenshots above), but also in my dual boot of W10.
