There certainly is, That's one of the first things I put back when working on W10 :) Its really simple. To make it even easier, do this.

Go to the following site/ Link , https://1drv.ms/u/s!ArtpakOMvZ4KiHrGKYTUwRyjIXH3

Download the reg file that's there ( click download at top of page)
IF it asks you to sign in just click the X to close the window, then you'll get the file. NO NEED to sign in.

Note: depending on what browser you use will depend on the buttons, but the Download WILL be one of them.

Go to where you downloaded it -- RIGHT click it - Merge. You'll get a couple of drastic looking warnings, just allow, continue. Once its done, takes a second. Photo viewer will be back.

To open photos in Viewer, right click the photo, - Open with - Select Photo Viewer:

If you want it to be default then change to default App.

PJ Watch the following video. Click on the link below and then click the Arrow. As terry posted DONT copy the link simply click it.

The Video shows using Edge, so when you click Download you can also click RUN instead of Save (at the bottom of the page) and it will do the same thing. :)

Awesome, thanks Wainui. I have always hated the win 10 picture viewer. It never occurred to me that I could change it.
There is an Easter egg with your name on it waiting for you here.
