    ms-resource:EditWithPhotos in context menu


    When I right click on an image to open the context menu, it provides me with an option "ms-resource:EditWithPhotos" which leads to the edit portion of the 'Photos' app. Obviously, the name suggests 'Edit' and that's not my problem.

    How do I fix the 'ms-resource:EditWithPhotos' from the context menu? I've re-installed the 'Photos' app and that didn't solve it. I changed the entry in the registry which temporarily fixed it, and then for some reason unknown to me, goes back to 'ms-resource:EditWithPhotos' after some time. Not sure what triggers it.

    The event viewer found the following entry concerning the app
    Activation of app Microsoft.Windows.Photos_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App failed with error: The requested object does not exist. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.

    That was in 'Application' errors. In 'System':

    Hello Bogey, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You might see if this may be able fix the "Edit with Photos" context menu for you.

    If that still doesn't help, then you might see if resetting the "Photos" app may.

    Neither of those options work. It's already in the context menu, just not properly labeled. It's as if the language file/replacement for the string is missing.

    I've tried reseting it, tried uninstalling it, the registry fix I've applied (searching ms-resource:EdithWithPhotos in regedit and replacing it with 'Edit with photos') is temporary... after some unknown event it goes back to 'ms-resource:EditWithPhotos.

    I went ahead and removed it from the context menu since I never use Photos to edit. I only like it to view the pictures

    Do you have the Photos app set as your default app?

    What happens when you press the key?

    Do you have a ms-resource:unknown in your start menu at the bottom?

    I do - in my case it is "Contact Support" and I can't get rid of it - it is due to partially removed apps I think.

    Yup, had it set as default since the first day I got the laptop... which was about a month ago.

    No, nothing like that in the start menu or app list or anything. The photo app itself runs, just the context menu wording is wrong

    I've updated the add .reg files in the tutorial below to see if they may better help now. If you like, please try the newer version.

    Since reinstalling and resetting the app didn't help either, it looks like you may need to do a repair install to fix this.

    I had come to the same conclusion but was hoping the gurus at the tenforums were able to help me without such drastic fix for a context menu wording. I had just removed the item from the context menu since I don't use photos to edit anyways. I have have a very slow wifi network, so it would take me days to configure my laptop back to usable terms. I'll re-install windows a bit later. Thanks for your help

    I saved that link for future reference.

    Some questions first: What about my windows 10 license? I bought the laptop with windows 10, that's what I wanted. I don't want to be buying windows 10 separately again to have my laptop running properly
