  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting here.

    As far as I know that Windows Photo Viewer isn't part of Windows 10, but if you upgraded from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you might still have it. To check, press and hold (or right-click) a photo in File Explorer, and select Open with. If Windows Photo Viewer isn't in the list, you cannot install it on Windows 10.

    Did you try to uninstall it and re install the windows photo view?  you also can post the issue on answer website.

    Since your issue is not related to developing software, I will move the case to off-topic forum.

    Best  Regards,
