Windows 10: Restore Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10
Hello Aconitum, and welcome to Ten Forums.
It's safe to do again if needed.
I tried that 1st & it completely ignored what i asked it to do, which is exactly what it was doing a few months ago. I swear the flaming thing's alive! It's actually there to select, but Windows 10 just thumbs its nose every time I ask for it as default.
Thanks - I can see I'll be doing it again & again
brink's tutorials are great, wonderfully comprehensive, though there have been a few times I wished he'd gone a, b, c, and d, rather than taking three off ramps and a u-turn along the way.
that said, great tutorial brink!
LOL, yeah those multiple options make it fun to keep simple.
I had to do a repair install of Windows 10. When I did the Windows Photo Viewer Restore.reg, now my pic show up with an orange or yellow tint to them.
It sounds like it's an issue with your Color Management profile. See if this below may fix it for you.
- Open Color Management (colorcpl.exe)
- Check the Use my settings for this device checkbox.
- Click the profile to select it.
- Click the Remove button. Click Continue.
- Click the Add button. Under ICC Profiles, double-click sRGB IEC61966-2.1.
- Click Close.
Thanks Brink. You've done it again. What would we do without you?
I'm glad it could help.
Hi, when I have a whole bunch of photos in a folder and open the photo the image preview is not showing, just the box, what could be causing this? thanks
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?
Cough. Hi there fellow forumers. I need your help. I've already know this problem of mine is a rather common problem among Windows 10 users. When I wish to open a picture with our good old Windows Photo Viewer, simply nothing happens or even if...
Jpg photo unable to open in windows photo viewer. i reset default apps. i choose default apps by file type.
I really liked the Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 7... The photo viewer built into Windows 10 is terrible.
Anyone know any good replacements? Something light weight.
When watching photos in Windows Photo Viewer all colors are added a "yellow" look. How do I change that so it looks normal?
If I resize the window so there are borders, they are yellow allso! Look at attached eksample.
