    Re: Windows Photo Viewer not working in my Windows 8

    Hi,

    You can change the default fotoviewer in Windows 8 which is not Windows Photo Viewer.

    Windows 8 has a big bug that the default photo view is not windows photo viewer.

    It will switch to full-screen "Metro Photos app" when anyone will try to open images.

    To change default photo viewer,

    Go to Windows 8 control panel > default programs > set your default programs > scroll to windows photo viewer > select "set this program as default" > OK.

    Thats how it can be done in a jiffy !

    Thanks.
