    Good. Sometimes, those updates will reset some stuff back to default.

    Brink is alway helping and I am so appreciative of his posts! I was able to get "Windows Photo Viewer" but the icon for the photos is not correct. Name:  Restore Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10 Apps & Features Tutorials - Google Chrome-000051.jpg

    Hello Silvera, :)

    As a test, do the thumbnails for the image files show correctly using a different size (ex: Medium) for the icon?

    The thumbnail is the image you see on the icon.

    See if using a medium, large, or extra large icon size will show it. Usually the small icon size (used in list and details) don't show the image.

    I had do no idea you could change the size. From the image I posted above they are both the same size. Prior to the crash the icon was always shown correctly I recovered the Windows Photo Viewer from the registry using a posting you provided on how to retrieve WPV.

    Are they showing the image for you now with a larger icon size?
