I have been running Microsoft Outlook 2007, now under

Customer Question

I have been running Microsoft Outlook 2007 for years, now under Windows 10, and had very few problems. However a few days ago I notice that I can't open any .jpg files which are sent to me as an attachment. The message comes up as: "This app can't open. There's a problem with Photos. Contact your system administrator about repairing or reinstalling it."
Nor can I open any photo files in Windows 10 folder "Pictures" unless I go via Photoshop.
If I attempt to open any photo in Windows 10 folder "Pictures", e.g. the Gherkin I photographed many years ago, I get an additional comment, i.e.:
"C:\Users\Robert Meier\Pictures\Buildings in London\Gherkin\DSCF0325
The application cannot be started. Try reinstalling the application to fix the problem"
Any thoughts and what application am I supposed to reinstall.
Kindly advise.
Thanks and regards
Robert Meier

I'm sorry about the issue. Please try the following:

Solution #2:

- Go to your Pictures folder. Then right-click on one .jpg photo file, then click on Properties. Then click on Change... Then scroll down, and click on option to show more apps. Then scroll down, then click on the item Windows Photo Viewer. Then click OK.

; then you should be able to open any photo file in folder Pictures, and you should be able to open any .jpg photo attachment.

Solution #3:

- If needed, download and install the FastStone Image Viewer software at the website below:
