Hi guys!

I bump this old thread with my experience. I just installed Windows 10 for the very first time in my life. Having built up some expectations, I was sad when I ran into the image viewer bug mentioned in this thread. To be honest, I just missed the good old "Windows Photo Viewer" that has been with Windows all the way from the XP era. This app-based "Photo" thing introduced with Windows 10 just seemed messy, not the least because of this issue with left/right arrow key not functioning when opening a photo from inside another software, e.g. Total Commander.

Now, instead of trying to fix the issue, I started doing research to find a way to get the good old "Windows stock" photo viewer available in Windows 10. I know for a fact that it's DLL- rather than EXE-based stuff, but it should still be doable, I thought. After quick research I found that this little .REG entry solves everything:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1Y9NvUQRfxcOVNFY05CSzJJUU0/view?usp=sharing

For those curious on what's in it, hereunder I post the actual code from inside the file.

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; Change Extension's File Type
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.jpg]
@="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Tiff"


; Change Extension's File Type
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.jpeg]
@="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Tiff"


; Change Extension's File Type
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.gif]
@="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Tiff"


; Change Extension's File Type
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.png]
@="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Tiff"


; Change Extension's File Type
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.bmp]
@="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Tiff"


; Change Extension's File Type
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.tiff]
@="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Tiff"


; Change Extension's File Type
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.ico]

@="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Tiff"


After applying this patch, all of a sudden Windows Photo Viewer is available to choose from in the list of apps under Windows Settings / System / Default Apps, and after you've chosen it, all sorts of image files will from here on be treated as in the good old days, and voila, the problem has vanished.

Cheers!

You can make a button to launch the Photo Viewer like this:
Code:
TOTALCMD#BAR#DATA
rundll32.exe shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen
%P%N
%ProgramFiles%\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoViewer.dll
Windows Fotofremviser


-1


Once you have used that, it will be on the list of programs under the context menu's "Open with..." where you can set it as default for the current filetype.

The button works for Windows XP, 7, 8.x and 10.

I found a little trick how to make arrows active: just open a folder with images in the Quick View Panel (CTRL + Q) and then open images from there. Of course, this solution isn’t ideal and it’s a bit annoying, but it works.

I was looking for the way to open/scroll multiple image/video files thru Win 10 Photo viewer using Total Com - and got here. Since I've got my trick after reading the topic, felt obliged to post the trick here.

In the folder with the images I'm hitting Ctrl+A and this selects everything (if there are another folders - yes, have to deselect them...), then simple right-click and select OPEN - now in Photo viewer one is able to scroll thru all the contents of particular folder!

My idea might not be new, but thanks for giving me a clue!
