    Photo Viewer is intermittent, and I have to restart often


    I was successfully able to open Windows Photo Viewer after installing the patch that allows me to use that instead of Photo. However, sometimes when my computer comes out of sleep it won't let me do it and I have to reboot it. My computer disconnects from the internet when it hibernates, but I was able to get it so it doesn't do that--even so there's a short lag once it reconnects. Is that related to it?

    I have a Toshiba Satellite with an SD drive 256GB, Win10 Home and up-to-date drivers.

    Try sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt to check / repair system files?

    Maybe, the viewer is not compatible with Win10. In my case, I always use this PhotoViewerPro program for my photos and images. It is compatible to almost any Window OS.
