Problem With Windows Photo Viewer On Lenovo Y50 70

Hellow there, when ever i try top view a photo with windows photo viewer i get a message saying " Windows Photo Viewer can't display the picture because there might not be enough memory available on your computer. Close some programs that you aren't using or free some hard disk space (if it's almost full), and then try again "

 

If you have a possible solution please reply back, thanks !

Hi AmericanFighter , 

 

Greetings. 

 

Some information are needed as to what is your current operating system and details of the issue.

Windows 10 users may not have the old windows photo viewer after a clean install or on current version.

Those highlighted articles are self help tools that is nifty to review. 

 

Similar articles here and here that may be similar to your case. 

"Windows Photo Viewer is one of the things that gets removed, or hidden from access after installing Windows 10. The new Photos app takes charge as the default handler for image files in Windows 10. "

Re: Problem With Windows Photo Viewer On Lenovo Y50 70

Hi AmericanFighter , 

 

Greetings. 

 

As windows photo viewer was replaced in WIndows 8.1 by Photos as a metro app , changes on the registry during updates may have also been changed. As some involves adding registries , it would be better to back up your personal files just in case. 

 

System restore may be able to revert such changes to a previous working date .

Sfc scannow can verify system files integrity.

 

Other photo viewers are also offered to higher Windows version that provides additional features for enhancing photo editing such as picasa nomacs XnView  IrfanView  FastStone 

 

Update us what works best for you.

 

Regards
