How to restore and use Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10

You might be wondering why you need to learn how to restore and use the Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10. After all, it was discontinued a few years ago thanks to the redesigned Photos app. While it may seem like an app from the past, Windows Photo Viewer isn’t going away anytime soon, which isn’t surprising given its ease of use.

Although Windows Photo Viewer used to be the default photo app on Windows 7 and 8, Microsoft replaced it with the Universal Windows Platform app simply called Microsoft Photos, which is what you are most likely using if you are currently using Windows 10. Stick to the Photos app, if you’re like us, you may find that Windows Photo Viewer is not only faster but makes it easier to view the photos you’ve stored on your local drives.
