    How to Change Default Action of Mouse Wheel for Photos app in Windows 10


    The Photos app included in Windows 10 is a universal app that allows you to enjoy, organize, edit, and share all your digital memories. It brings together photos and videos from all your devices, enhances them to make great photos even better, and organizes them into beautiful albums for you.

    When viewing a single item in the Photos app, you can rotate the mouse wheel to either view next or previous item or zoom in and out.

    Ctrl + mouse wheel will always zoom in and out.

    This tutorial will show you how to change the default mouse wheel action for the Photos app to either view next or previous item or zoom in and out for your account in Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1 Open the Photos app.

    2 Click/tap on the See more button Change Default Action of Mouse Wheel for Photos app in Windows 10-see_more.png, and click/tap on Settings. (see screenshot below)

    Hi @Brink

    Is it possible to change "Edit" behavior, too!? Instead of "Edit with Garbage Paint 3D" use "Edit with Lovely MS Paint" (SS below). I have not installed "Paint 3D" and don't use it, instead always using MS Paint for (simple) editing. I didn't find any registry key to replace it (Paint 3D with MS Paint).

    I have to right click on image (in "Photos" app) then select "Open with" and select "Paint" from the list. I think Microsoft should bring the "Paint" option directly to the main right click in "Photos" app.

    I'm not aware of a way other than making MS Paint the default app for the file type to have it open in MS Paint with a click.

    Thanks … I wish there was a registry key that I didn't know about . Photos app (latest version) have been super fast (I can't believe that yet!!!) but they ruined another thing (as always) . Scroll and zoom don't work when you select "View actual size"!

    I insisted to use "Photos" app as default photo viewer not editor (its editor is rubbish) and didn't install third party photo viewer and editor since 2 years ago and finally they made it super fast with bugs!
