Cant open images, jpegs, bmp etc on Windows 10

If you ever find yourself, trying to open a picture in Windows 10 using the default image viewer just to get a message saying. “Select an application”, “No Application for this file type” and so on, then powershell could be your friend here, it seems that it is caused by “Windows” defaulting to English so it look for “pictures” instead of “billeder” (in danish at least).

To solve it I have often used, the powershell command below, just open powershell and paste this line. Press enter

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

Some lines may show up in red, that is mostly because of missing components. (that is things you havent yet installed or dont plan to)
