    Didn't find anything while searching the forums...

    But any idea how to get the list of photo editors when you edit a photo in the photos app, to show the one you want to use? Stuff like lumia creative studio and 6tag shows up but not the one I want.

    In a conversation with 'tech support' now who claims I just don't know how to use my phone lol so I figure I better ask lol.

    Yes. Contact the devs of the app you use and ask them to integrate it properly. Many devs do listen and engage with constructive customers. This has to be done by the devs of the app concerned.

    I mean the devs of the photo editor(s), not tech support for the phone or the MS devs who wrote the photo app. The editor apps need to register themselves as such within Windows to do what you want. Should be an easy fix for the app devs.

    They said it was impossible... So I have started showing some examples, like 6tag and Adobe photoshop express works.

    However... I seem to be having trouble finding a UWP photo editor that shows up. I wonder if that's a limitation?

    Nope, any app can register to link with the Photos app. More likely they don't want to bother with their W10 version of their app. Give a poor review and state why, then get an app from some devs who don't want to give you the cold shoulder.

    The app is picsart and supported Windows pretty good.

    They said now it's a certain cooperation between Microsoft and software company that is needed... So strange

    "It's truly a matter of certain cooperation that exists between those softwares and Microsoft that we have not reached.It'strulya question of time and through efforts of exceeding in making PicsArt even greater. This type of cooperation made by Microsoft is not done to everyone, which is a shame to see this sort of ''challenge'' between software and the platform. "

    Well, I was not aware of that. I'm still not sure I believe it. What an odd thing to do when integration with other components such as registering as the default map app or as a contacts app does not require this special developer status. Why is registering as a photos app different? Very weird.
