    A couple of links to enable Photo Viewer in Windows 10. I have not used either so cannot personally comment on them but have a look and see what you think.

    I used this tutorial to restore Photo Viewer in my computer until I installed Windows Essentials which I switched to Windows Photo Gallery.

    The tutorial is simpler than ABC.
