I was trolling and came across a great little idea. Now I should say up front ... I have paint.net installed on my computer prior to doing this.
Run this line in powershell: (You can get to powershell by holding down the shift key and r-mousing any blank spot in explorer, or run it by 'your' favorite way to run powershell. (Note: Powershell replaces the old cmd/DOS prompt)
get-appxpackage Microsoft.Windows.Photos | remove-appxpackage
It deletes the metro-iCrap-App Microsoft Photos.
On my computer this means when I click on an image in skype etc.., they are pulled up in paint.net instead of the metro-iCrap-App.
I admit, I'm worried that an upgrade will auto-install the Windows-10-Universally-Crap-App Photos again. But for now at least - I have a much better experience with that app gone.
