    I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, and Windows Photo Viewer works fine, but I did have to set it as the default program.
    I notice today that when I did a clean instillation that Photo Viewer was no longer there. Just an FYI.

    My understanding is that it works on upgrades but not on clean installs.
    Yes,, I did a clean install last night and it was not there afterwards. I suspect it's carried forwarded from Win8.1/Win7 to WIn10 when you upgrade but it's not natively built into 10.

    Does the new Photos app in Win 10 work? When I upgraded, it didn't. I therefore had to go back and make Photo Viewer the default. Otherwise, if the new app had worked, I probably would have stuck with it.

    Mine stays the same after a reboot. That option doesn't work, folks.
    I don't know what to tell you, it works for me.

    I am on the Home edition and I did not do a clean install. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    I found that it works fine when I did a clean instillation. I didn't try in when I did the upgrade because I was using Photo Viewer.

    I just installed the thing and I can't even find it on my system!
    The whole argument is that it's there if you do an upgrade, it not there if you do a clean install. Thus the mass confusion.

    Looks like on Insider edition it doesn't matter. First I updated 10166 to 10240 and than installed 10240 clean and works everywhere. As a matter of fact I had to associate all picture formats to Windows photo viewer because it's much better and I'm used to it anyway.

    That's because previous Insider builds had the Photo Viewer working just fine.

    If you upgraded from W7 or W8.1 or W10 early Insider build to W10 final build, then Windows Photo Viewer works just fine.

    You can already disable driver installation from Windows Update.

    Search for "device installation settings" then choose "no, let me choose what to do" > click "never install driver software from Windows Update."
    Thanks for that. I prefer to check for driver updates direct from the manufacturers as I've occasionally had problems in the past.
