    Thank you for this helpful article. I recently purchased a new laptop with manufacture-installed Windows 10. Will this work? Or it’s only pertaining to upgrade from previous Windows 7 and 8 to Windows 10? Thank you.

      Joe I have tested it on Windows 10 Version 1809 and it works perfectly fine. You just have to right click a photo, go to Open With, select Choose another app and then select Windows Photo Viewer from the list.

        It’s not working for me. I had another windows 10 new laptop (Dell Inspiron) that worked fine following the steps listed. I returned that laptop for an XPS and now the steps don’t work. Any ideas?

    I’ve added the file posted here, but after clicking at “Set your default programs” in Control panel I get the System setting app opens directly and over there I cannot see the list of available programs in order to enable it. Is there any other way to do this?

    So I tried again and now I can see window photo viewer, but it only includes photos that are in tiff format. I never use tiffs, so nope not helpful. thanks anyway.

    Nope it didn’t work. I downloaded it. followed the steps to add to registry, but when I go to set default apps, it is NOT there. how sad. any advice????????????? I hate the new photo viewer that comes with new windows 10 computers. it keeps closing all the photos I have open and making me start every project over and over………

      you shouldn’t go straight to “default apps settings”, you should find a jpg/png/jpeg file, right click, “open with”, “more apps”, check “always use this to open XX”, and click windows photo viewer~ do this with all of the file types you would like to open with windows photo viewer.
