For the Original Poster
I love you original poster! Thanks for posting this information! Windows Photo Viewer is WAY better for desktops (non-tablets). So happy to have it back. You rock! Created just an account to say thank you

I can't locate the .exe file for Photo Viewer. How do you make a shortcut to start it directly?
Windows Photo Viewer doesn't have an .exe file, It's run by dllhost.exe COM Surrogate instead. It needs to be opened as the default program from the file.
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.
