First set the downloaded Windows Photo Viewer as default .....................
Right click at Start button > Control Panel > top right, click View by: > select either large or small > click Default Programs > click Set your default program > wait for loading > left side, scroll down to Windows Photo Viewer > click it > right side, click set this program as default > click OK when done.
Now go to one of your pictures files > right click at it > click Open.
Does it open in Windows Photo Viewer ?
If you have Open With installed in your right click Context Menu, you can just simpley right click at one of your pictures > click Open With > at the bottom, click Choose another app > locate Windows Photo Viewer > click it > check the box " Always use this app to open.... > click OK when done.
This tutorial will work with Windows 10.
I used that one myself.
thx for your help, i have just found it
however i cant seems to open jpg file with it...i have already change my ost and have attachment of the picture in it, any suggestion..?
Hello Shin, and welcome to Ten Forums.
Were you able to set Windows Photo Viewer as the default program with all of it's associations using the tutorial below?
Save your attachment to a folder first > then use the Open With to open each picture.
hi, yes i have set wpv to default, however i still cant open the jpg image...i have attach two image on my previous post, when i tried open jpg file with wpv, it say that either my photo is wrong format or wpv is not the latest version
um...did i do it correctly now?
It looks like there may be an issue with that specific .jpg file.
Does it do this for any other .jpg?
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.
