windows fax and picture viewer in Windows 10


[link to this post]
 
Have Microsoft taken this out complexly in windows 10 creator edition? I have edited the registry and still can not get it. It is far better than the rubbish Universal thing that MS have put in Windows 10.


i want windows 8 back.

I was assuming that was what the OP had already tried when said about editing the registry. The fixes on the net seem to be pre-creator edition so wondering if the new edition has removed the executables from the build now.

It's a dll, still present in my 1703 installation at "C:\Program Files\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoViewer.dll".

Did you use the free app or manual input?

You still need to set the app as default. M$ do all they can to force you to use their apps and not 3rd party stuff.

I know, i looked for it in the apps and it was not there. But now it is, very strange, I even rebooted the machine, but it was still not visible, but I just had another look and it is there.

It is not third party it is Ms own software, just an older one and not horrid universal rubbish. you are right Ms will try anything to get us to use rubbish Windows 10 apps. If I can get windows 8 working on this machine i will go back to that.
