Windows 10: Restore Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10
I'm glad it could help Cerveny.
It will restore preview options too like windows 7/8?
Yes, the "Preview" option in the context menu will be there as well. It's basically just the same as opening the image though.

Thankss, only missed .ico image...
You're most welcome soufake, and welcome to Ten Forums.
There's not any default registry entries for .ico, but you can easily set Windows Photo Viewer to be the default program for .ico files though.
Thank you!!! Been looking for this since i installed Windows 10!!
This came in timely! Shawn I have a good collection of 10 screens as well as other jpeg files to go over at times and the default Photos wasn't making the trip! I don't think Photo Viewer works out on the mobile platform being the likely explanation for why it was removed to begin with.
I've restored windows photo viewer, but when I put a smart card from my camera in the reader slot, the import menu I'm used to does not open, instead the new w-10 Photo continues to open. And while I might have been willing to try to learn how to use it, it fails to import new pictures from the smart card. It just endlessly searches for new photos. Any suggestions? And I'm glad to find you because I can't find a tutorial for the new Photo anywhere.
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.
