Windows 7: I want my MS Photo Editor back!

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

The editor of Windows 7 is powerful. If you find a professional photo editor, the photoshop is a good choice.

If MS Photo Editor won't open jpg/jpeg files, chances are the graphics jpeg codec found in root drive:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\GRPHFLT is corrupt. Download a copy (search for JPEGIM32.FLT ) and replace. Has worked every time for me when there's been a problem.

I too incidentally agree that MS Photo Editor is very hard to beat and really don't know why on earth MS discontinued it!

Thanks very much indeed to the member posting a download link for it!

I got it to download on Windows 7, but I can't drag & drop a picture. Any idea what the problem could be?

I'd uninstall then re-install it. Drag and drop works for me even in Win 7 x64 bit. Otherwise could be a corrupted graphics filter. Have you tried drag and drop for different images, different image formats?

I sometimes get a problem that Photo Editor won't open, stays on the task bar. If this happens close Photo Editor via the task manager (or reboot),
open Regedit (type regedit at the start menu) go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Microsoft, Photo Editor, 3.0, Microsoft Photo editor and right click on the Initial_Position key and delete this key.
