    May be it should be useful.
    Code:
    :: Add "Open with Windows Photo Viewer" to the Context Menu
    reg add "HKCR\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open" /v "MuiVerb" /t REG_SZ /d "@photoviewer.dll,-3043" /f
    reg add "HKCR\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\command" /ve /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d "%%SystemRoot%%\System32\rundll32.exe \"%%ProgramFiles%%\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoViewer.dll\", ImageView_Fullscreen %%1" /f
    reg add "HKCR\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget" /v "Clsid" /t REG_SZ /d "{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" /f
    reg add "HKCR\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\print\command" /ve /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d "%%SystemRoot%%\System32\rundll32.exe \"%%ProgramFiles%%\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoViewer.dll\", ImageView_Fullscreen %%1" /f
    reg add "HKCR\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\print\DropTarget" /v "Clsid" /t REG_SZ /d "{60fd46de-f830-4894-a628-6fa81bc0190d}" /f
    Code:
    :: Association
    cmd.exe /c 'ftype Paint.Picture=%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoViewer.dll", ImageView_Fullscreen %1'
    cmd.exe /c 'ftype jpegfile=%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoViewer.dll", ImageView_Fullscreen %1'
    cmd.exe /c 'ftype pngfile=%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoViewer.dll", ImageView_Fullscreen %1'
    cmd.exe /c 'ftype TIFImage.Document=%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoViewer.dll", ImageView_Fullscreen %1'
    cmd.exe /c "assoc .bmp=Paint.Picture"
    cmd.exe /c "assoc .jpg=jpegfile"
    cmd.exe /c "assoc .jpeg=jpegfile"
    cmd.exe /c "assoc .png=pngfile"
    cmd.exe /c "assoc .tif=TIFImage.Document"
    cmd.exe /c "assoc .tiff=TIFImage.Document"
    cmd.exe /c "assoc Paint.Picture\DefaultIcon=%SystemRoot%\System32\imageres.dll,-70"
    cmd.exe /c "assoc jpegfile\DefaultIcon=%SystemRoot%\System32\imageres.dll,-72"
    cmd.exe /c "assoc pngfile\DefaultIcon=%SystemRoot%\System32\imageres.dll,-71"
    cmd.exe /c "assoc TIFImage.Document\DefaultIcon=%SystemRoot%\System32\imageres.dll,-122"
    Now you can associate png, jpg, bmp and TIFF files with Windows Photo Viewer instantly without reboot.

    Hi,

    Brink - This is workin on Windows Server 2016 as well?
    I have a RDS/Terminal server and will apply "Restore_Windows_Photo_Viewer_ALL_USERS".
    I have tested in my lab server and it worked well, i could also sort and read images without any isue without adding other reg key for sort order fix

    Hello Nidalo, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Yes, it should work with Windows Server 2016 as well. Thank you for confirming.

    OK thank you
    And since I don't see any problem with the ALL_USERS (without the sort order fix) I guess there is no need to apply this instead? Or which of the both reg keys do you recommend?

    Nidalo,

    Personally, I like using step 2 in Option Two. It's just a matter of preference though. Since you don't need the sort order fix, there's no need to apply it.
