Why can't I browse to the next image in the Windows 10 Photos app?


#1

That is the Windows Photos app choosing to do things differently depending on how it is launched, and there’s no other documented way to launch it that we are aware of (as with a lot of the “Metro” side of Windows).

The same problem happens if you launch it via the Open With dialog in Opus, but not the same dialog in Explorer, even though both dialogs are handled entirely by the operating system. It seems Explorer does something special, and possibly undocumented, when it launches “Metro” applications.

We recommend using the Opus image viewer instead :grinning:
