Hi! We on the Photos team are hearing from the Windows Feedback app, Reddit, and Twitter that many people prefer the Windows Photo Viewer over the Photos app for opening photos from File Explorer. We are dedicated to making the Windows 10 Photos app the best photo viewing experience for Windows ever, and in this discussion we want to hear from YOU.
We want to understand why users are choosing the Windows Photo Viewer instead of the Photos app. What can you do with the Windows Photo Viewer, but not with the Photos app?
Please let us know how we can make transitioning to the Photos app easy for you! Liking posts and adding your own stories can help us best understand the top ways the Photos app doesn't suit your needs.
UPDATE: We are no longer actively monitoring this discussion thread, as we want to analyze the feedback we have already received. This discussion will not be closed, and you are welcome to add comments if you choose.
