Make Windows Photo Viewer the default image viewer on Windows 10

Windows 10 Creator update replaced (read: forced users to use) the Microsoft Photos app with Microsoft’s new Paint 3D. I didn’t like Microsoft Photos app, and I really dislike Paint 3D.

I found an article on Howto Geek and it provides a downloadable Registry tweak to actually bring back the older Windows Photo Viewer that most of us are familiar with from Windows 7.

Note: If you do not want the older Windows Photo Viewer and just prefer the Microsoft Photos app, you can install that app from the Microsoft Store.

I have also saved the download and have made it available from this server as well.
