How to Install Office Picture Manager in Windows 10

Microsoft Office Picture Manager is a graphics viewer and editor introduced in Microsoft Office 2003 and included up to Office 2010. Many people prefer the good old Microsoft Office Picture Manager, perhaps for it’s UI or UX, and want to install it on Windows 10.

However, Microsoft has discontinued the Picture Manager with the release of Office 2013. The equivalent functionality is now provided in the Windows 10’s Photos app, which has the image crop, resize, red-eye removal, video trimming, and other features. Alternatively, you can also enable the classic Windows Photo Viewer using the registry, or install the Windows Live Photo Gallery (which is now unsupported by Microsoft).

If you desperately need the Office Picture Viewer, the good news is that you can still install it on Windows 10. The SharePoint Designer 2010 installer includes the Office Picture Manager as an optional component that can be installed as a standalone application.

This article tells you how to install Office Picture Manager on Windows 10 and earlier, regardless of the version of Office — e.g., Office 2013, Office 2016, Office 365 — installed on the computer. Office Picture Manager is super-fast (like the Windows Photo Viewer) especially if you’re going to use it as an image previewer.Read more
