Double-clicking an image sets it as the background image instead of opening it

Copper Contributor


I currently need to use the context menu to open an image because double-clicking it sets it as the background image. Does anybody know how to fix it?

See if reinstalling the Photos app helps.


From PowerShell (administrator), run:


Get-AppxPackage -allusers Microsoft.Windows.Photos | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
