    "Mail" is a major role for windows 10. The progress it came to 10166 for the July 29 is pretty disappointed.

    Lots of improvement required!

    Name a few:

    1. One click to sync all Accounts.
    2. Drag and place message from one Account to another.
    3. Display all Accounts and folders in one pane.

    Clean install just takes 10mins max. You should have been done hours ago. I just did a clean install. Everything working so far.
    Aha! You decided to go with the old slow lunker, I see. Welcome to the fray.

    Is anyone still able to open .jpg files and .png files using Windows Photo Viewer on this latest build? I just did a clean install to 10166 and it is not letting me, says this APP cannot be run on this PC. I can only use photos app to open .jpg and .png files. What is going on?? Can someone help me out here? I want to use Windows Photo Viewer to view my pictures but its not letting me, anyone???
    I just checked and Photo Viewer is my default. I can open .jpg and .png files with no problem.

    You won't be able to upgrade to Windows 10 on July 29 if you don't have your Microsoft account connected.

    mail works very well for me. i really like that i can put all of my different clients in the same app, and switch between them, with a preview on the right hand side. very convenient.
    and i fixed my screen saver problem. if anyone else is having problems with their screen saver, just roll the driver back to 353.06. now everything is working perfectly. i think 353.30 has some problems in it.

    Don't you need mail to?
    1. One click to sync all Accounts.
    2. Drag and place message from one Account to another.
    3. Display all Accounts and folders in one pane.

    Or, maybe I'm asking too much?

    ...so I had to open NOTEPAD and past this code and save it as pic.reg. As soon as I did that, Photo Viewer started working again..
    So, once you saved it as pic.reg, didn't you have to double-click the file to merge it into the registry? Just want to clarify if a step is missing, in case someone comes here searching and tries your solution.
    Thanks.

    STEVAE, I have already resolved the "A program is preventing your computer from shutting down" issue, I have posted this some time yesterday, sorry I cannot go back in this thread and search for the post. Anyway, thank you, and here is how I have these keys set in my Registry. Do you agree with these values? In any case, It does not show this message at shut down or restart anymore.

    When it comes to the Photo Viewer it works fine on my system, too. I can preview .jpg and .png.

    Hello,

    I completely agree with you. I come straight from Windows 7 Home Premium. It is only now that I am trying to perceive the usefulness and the usability of the Windows Applications. I think I like them. But I agree that the Mail app needs improvement and also to make the Live tile work = to show something.

    Personally, I am more happy for the virtual desktops because I can always use Outlook 2013 or 2016 (desktop) and have it open and running on a virtual desktop all the time. But IF they will make the Mail app to function as it is supposed to, then I will use that one to check and read my e-mails. When it comes to composing a new message, Outlook desktop is the only way for me.

    Thanks.
    Yes of course, sorry my bad. Save as pic.reg then double click to import into registry, yes twice and viola it works. Everyone was telling me to do a clean install which is what I did.

    First i tried a reset and that didnt work so I did a clean ISO install via ESD 10166 and still had the same problems right after the clean install which is so strange. I have no idea why. I did clean install via ESD 10166 same problem.

    Clean install on 10166 everything was working except Windows Photo Viewer (CLASSIC) not the APP one. It would not load, I kept on getting APP won't open message if I choose to open a .jpg with another program which was Windows Photo Viewer Classic. Once I did that reg hack that I posted 2 pages back, and imported it, it started working again. I have no idea why it was removed from the registry. Some other users on reddit said the same thing, thats where I got the pastebin file from.

    And I did do a clean install, which is the strange part.

    Now I am having problems with update. It downloads the file and then starts to install and then I get this message:

    Code:
    There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help:
    
    Definition Update for Windows Defender = KB2267602 - Error 0x80070643
    Never had problems before. This is starting to tick me off tonight and its midnight already and I accomplished nothing. I think I might need to shut this crap off and go watch a movie or something on a working stable O/S
