There may be issues with the file format you are trying to view/open, try to Change which programs Windows uses by default
A default program is the program that Windows uses when you open a particular type of file, such as a music file, an image, or a webpage. For example, if you have more than one web browser installed on your computer, you can choose one of them to be the default browser.
Open Default Programs by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Default Programs.
In Default Programs, you can: Set your default programs. Use this option to choose which programs you want Windows to use by default. If you want to use your Windows Live Photo Gallery or Photo Gallery to open all photos, use this option.
You may follow the steps below:
1. Right click on any one of the picture and select Open With and click Change Default program.
2. Now select the Windows Photo Viewer in the list.
3. Now put a check mar for “Always use a selected program to open this kind of file”.
