Re­store Win­dows Photo Viewer

Windows 7 Help & Advice - - FEATURE -

Mi­crosof t has re­placed Win­dows Photo Viewer with the Pho­tos app, but it’s pos­si­ble to re­store it as an op­tion when set­ting the de­fault app for pho­tos. It’s a con­vo­luted process – see ‘Method 4’ at www.askvg.com/ tip-restor­ing-win­dows-photo-viewer-as­de­fault-in-win­dows-10/. How­ever, the AskVG web­site does pro­vide a ready-made zip file con­tain­ing the re­quired Reg­istry en­tries. Down­load this to your PC, then open it to ac­cess the .reg file within. Dou­ble-click this, then choose Run fol­lowed by Yes (twice) to make Win­dows Photo Viewer an op­tion again.
