What would Bill Gates say?

How to get Windows Photo Viewer to work with Windows 10.
An easy fix:

Sounds ridiculously simple, but after trying to get Windows Photo Viewer to work on Windows 10 unsuccessfully for ages, I gave up. I much prefer the old Viewer than the newer Photos app.

Then I suddenly had a brainwave. If the Viewer currently only appears when viewing Tiff files ( you can't make a shortcut...well easily anyway), I thought why not make a simple placement tiff file that can be dropped into folders with images. Clicking this will open the Viewer and it's business as usual.
For now anyway until Windows ditched the Viewer completely.

Anyway, if you want to give it a go, just grab the image above and try it.
