Hi Salsassin,

Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

You can perform App Troubleshooter and check if it helps.

If the issue still persists,it could be a problem with the Photos app database. To reset the database, perform the following:

1. Press windows button + R

2. Type: %appdata%\..\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Photos_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState

3. Delete all the contents of that folder.

Let us know the status of the issue.

Thanks.

Hi Oliver, I close it, and next thing you know, the program is open again. I can't figure out what is making it restart itself.

Same for me as Anil, the app just opens itself in a window at random intervals. It can happen when I'm not even touching the keyboard. I close it, and some time later it reappears. Tried emptying the folder and the troubleshooter, but it's still doing it. Thanks for any help!

Not sure if there's been an update or it's just one of those strange random things, but it's stopped, so thanks if they're due ;)
