    Seems to me windows 10 is tying you into only using (and hence buying) Microsoft applications.

    For example try changing your default photo viewer to anything other the the Windows app or the few other apps they list. If the app is not on that list, as many free photo apps are, you are shafted.

    Seems to me like you dont know how to use your computer properly.


    If the app is not in that list, "choose other app" => "more apps" =>"Look for another app on this PC"


    You have installed the app you want to use , haven't you ?
