    Photo App is crazy

    First I thought it was slow. Then I got tired of waiting and figured out how to associate all my photos with the windows photo viewer from the desktop apps like I was used to with Windows 7

    However, I would like to give it a fair chance to work. So, I am posting here.

    When I click on the photo app, it shows some folders, sometimes it kicks me back to the desktop before I can click anytime. Other times, it may show a photo for a few seconds before kicking me back. Either way, this is not acceptable.

    The app is not closing. It is still running because if I click the left corner, I see it and can access it again, if over for a second.

    Is this experience common. I have had my windows 8 pc a week and I switched over to windows 8.1 about two days after I initially got it setup. I am a very experienced Windows 7 user. I am trying to be open minded about this new operating system.

    Have you tried updating to update 1? It offers an X button like Win7 and it does help. My grandma (yes, I know) had that problem and updating to update 1 (also known as Windows 8.1.1) fixed it.
