Hello. I was able to restore Windows Photo Viewer on my computer. I am able to set certain types of images to open with it. However, an annoying feature that came with the default Photos imaging method for the newest Microsoft Edge, is that the "plus" or check sign, when clicked once, produces the the sliding "minus to plus" horizontal axis bar that the cursor must slide across to the right to enlarge the displayed image, or to the left, to reduce image size.

I would like to be able to skip that step by hitting the initial "plus" icon repeatedly to enlarge the image or some "minus" icon to reduce size. How can I get that back for my pc? And, can I get that feature back without disrupting my desktop's operation? Can I do it without disrupting my pc in some other way?

Yes, it works. I was able, however, to reinstall Windows Photo Viewer. The problem is that, while I was able to make it my default viewer for most things, the only real change is that Photo's black background became WPV white background. The horizontal cursor line remained. That's bad, because a user can only increase the size of the picture to the end of the line, which still might be too small. The enlargement feature line is too short. I had to make Infanview 64 my default viewer. It still has the + and - icons that I can mouse-hit repeatedly to enlarge or minimize photos, without limitation. Yeah, I can use other programs to get around this problem, such as the Infanview, but I'd rather do it with Windows Photo Viewer, and in a way that allows me to use my mouse.
Possible? Comtrain9
