How do I set Photo app to open .webp files?

Occasional Contributor


Through the two paths I know of to change default file type apps there is no way to set the photo app to open a file type. 

Can Microsoft please sort this out so that we can open new image types - like webp - with the app that we want. And why is the photo app hidden?

Agreed. Even with the WebP photo extension installed, it's still not possible to choose the Photos app for opening WebP images.
