    Windows 8 pro “windows photo viewer” is unable to open photos when opened

    Hi there! My windows photo viewer is unable to open any photos through it in windows 8 pro system. I’m tried to open a image file by double clicking on it, but instead of opening a image with “windows image viewer” picasa photo album is opening the image file! Any help on this issue??

    Follow these steps to resolve your issue,
    1)First of all, windows photo viewer can only view .JPG, .TIF, .PNG, .GIF, .BMP, .BMP
    2)Looks like your default program is set to picasa photo album in your windows system.
    3)Follow these steps to change it to windows photo viewer
    4)Go to start screen → Search for “set your default programs” → Select windows photo viewer
    5)Finally click on “set this program as default”
    6)After that click on OK
    7)Restart once and check whether it works or not
    That’s it over!
