Right Click the File and select Properties - does the File extension end with .jpg ?


If you click the Photo File and it doesnt open with Windows Photo Viewer , it may have lost its association to those jpeg formats.

Right Click the jpeg file from its folder within explorer , and select Open With , then Select -  Choose Default Program and Select Windows Photo Viewer and also check the Box to always use the selected program to open these files , and click Ok.


If that fails it may be a fault with the Photo Viewer , then you should try as above again and try Paint - but uncheck the Box.

If Paint doesnt open the File , then the issue is with the File itself.
