Has anyone made registry changes that install (or make available) Photo Viewer? Apparently a downloads are available (eg Winaero Tweaker) which have been used successfully without adverse unintended consequences. I upgraded from 7 so I have Photo Viewer. However, my SIL's new PC comes with the new Photos app only which, imo, is a big step back. Thanks.

I can't help with Photo Viewer but take a look at FastStone Image Viewer (Free for home use).

Yes, it can be done.  See this article: http://www.askvg.com/tip-restoring-windows-photo-viewer-as-default-in-windows-10/

I am in the process of giving FastStone Image Viewer a try out.....Looks extremely promising.....certainly a major improvement on windows 10 default program !

Thanks. Tried it and it looks good except not easy to exit photo. Maybe I am missing something.

Thanks, but way above my pay grade. Sounds way too tricky, especially on someone else's computer.

Duh, I just discovered Photo Gallery is part of the Essentials suite which suits my needs...much better than Photos.

@ Artbuc......I am assuming you are talking about when the pic fills the whole screen......Just hit the esc button.

Thanks, why didn't I think of that?? The only way I could get out was right clicking to bring up a menu with an exit option. Overall, looks pretty unuser friendly for someone who is mostly just opening and closing photos

Our experiences vary....I have found it to be rather cool.    Play with it some more, it has some interesting features...ease of access etc
