Open an admin command prompt, type in chkdsk, press enter
Type cmd into search here, right click, run as admin
When it has finished, does it show?: Windows has scanned the file system and found no problems.

I ran CheckDisk & no problems found. It still does the same thing.

When you see the message how do you want to open this file?, choose Photos.
If you prefer to use FSViewer, change back to that after the problem is solved.

Choosing Photos worked & it still worked after I changed it back to FSViewer. I have absolutely no idea why it worked. Thanks a bunch. You guys are always able to help me out. Now if I can get my icons back in list view I'll be a happy camper.

Control Panel, Default Programs, Associate a file type or protocol ... , select png, change program, choose Photos.
Again if you prefer to use FSViewer or another program, change back to that after the problem is solved.

Setting icons back to list view is fairly easy, just not entirely obvious in Win 10. In File Explorer, select 'View' at the top left and then choose 'List' from the panel roughly in the middle of the 'ribbon'. Then if you go to 'Options' at the right hand end of the 'ribbon' and click on it you get folder options. Now I haven't tried this bit in Win 10 but you should get a dialogue box which has three tabs at the top, select 'View'.
You then get the choice to 'apply to all folders of this type'. Select this option, then click 'Apply' to make your changes take effect and that should be it.
Once upon a time - in XP and earlier - that would have been it. This option affected every folder on the computer but no longer. If you do this for a folder of JPGs, photos, then every folder of JPGs will be in 'List view', but your documents folder won't be unless you have previously set it to 'List'. This operation needs to done for folders of different fiile types. I can in fact see a good reason for this but if like me you like everything in 'List' view it is a little annoying as I discovered when I upgraded from XP to Win 7.

Let's face it, Microsoft doesn't make anything easy but they sure know how to annoy us.
