    That is also not what I wanted. I guess I will have to get an older version of Windows if I want to get the correct icon back. I appreciate your help but it just did not address the problem of the wrong icon.

    Well, as an alternative, you could try a 3rd party file browser like the ones below to use instead of File Explorer to see if that may work better.

    Perhaps the OP is thinking about the detailed Tiles view from Windows 7:

    I guess "Tiles" view would be the closest to that.

    I tried those suggestions and did not like them. Guess I'm stuck with the wrong icons.

    The only way you'll get the view you're after is to set the Folder view to Details, then, holding down Ctrl, scroll up 3 increments on your mouse wheel,
    only problem is, they won't stay like that and I don't know why! Sorry!

    Thanks for the info, I'll stick with wrong icons and later see if I can find a fix.

    I successfully restored Windows Photo Viewer in my Windows 10 installation. But Photo Viewer as I know it, had a filmstrip under the larger picture where one could see the other pictures in the same folder. This was very handy because the pictures in the filmstrip could easily be copied into another folder by swiping the picture to that folder. I did not find this filmstrip in the refound installation. Somebody here can tip me to bring this fantastic feature back?

    Hello @McCage, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You might see if step 4 in Option One of the tutorial below to change the thumbnail border of image files to a video reel may be what you wanted.

    Sorry, no that is not what I meant. By 'filmstrip' I mean not a border round one image, but a serie of thumbnails next to each other.

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?
