    For many years I've managed photos received from any source by storing them in a variety of folders within This PC > Pictures. Sometime in the last year the Microsoft Photos App showed up and took control of all pictures. I hate the way it works, but have been unable to delete the app. To paraphrase Henry II, can anyone rid me of this meddlesome beast?

    You can always change the default app for your pics. Start / Settings / Apps / Default apps and choose which app you want as default.
