    Whenever I open a photo in Windows 10, there is a rectangular dialog box at the bottom center that contains the next and previous arrows, as well as the trash icon and some other unidentifiable icon that does not work. This command box partially blocks many photos, and I can't find any way to hide it while viewing a photo. It's really annoying, and I never had this issue with Windows 7. What's going on?

    Hi Welcome to Window Central. You can change what opens your photos. It sounds like you are using photos to open your photo. Choose a different option to open your photos.
    Right click the photo- Click Properties- Change !

    Personally I found Photos App less than satisfactory so I uninstalled it. I instead use the deprecated but still highly useful Office Picture Manager '07.

    Details on that are here: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...dows-10-a.html

    Not at all... I just preferred to save the processing power from Photo's incessant scanning. It aggregates way too much and I'm in the old habit of looking at pics folder by folder and I have some meticulous organizing that Photos runs roughshod over.
