Go here. Scroll down to Photos and click set this program as default. Does anything change?

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Default Programs

It seems there is a problem with your metro applications or something.

EDIT: Apparently TWINUI shows up as default when registry gets corrupted. At least this is what they are saying here.

What is TWinUI? – Tablet Windows UI

Thanks @SHvFl
It is difficult for me to translate, I will try later (need more time) or hope that @DardiM can help me;)

@TheSuperGeek has translated correctly the message box.

Clique-droit sur une des photos, choisis "ouvrir avec" (pas "ouvrir" !) et selectionne ton application habituelle, ou la Visionneuse de photo Windows

=> fais la même chose pour chaque extension

(
right-click on one of the pictures, choose "open with' (and not "open" !) and select your normal app, or Windows Photo Viewer
=> do the same for each different extensions
)

Too many issues with Windows 10, I would start a fresh.

Microsft Support: Recovery Options for Windows 10 - Expand Reset this PC for instructions.

Reset this PC + Keep my files will:
  • Reinstall Windows 10 and keeps your personal files.
  • Removes apps and drivers you installed.
  • Removes changes you made to settings.
  • Removes any apps your PC manufacturer installed. (If your PC came with Windows 10, apps from your PC manufacturer will be reinstalled.)
But you can keep a copy elsewhere
  • offline (local) or online backup of your data
  • move data to secondary internal drive
  • create a new primary partition next to C: drive for data only

Try right clicking on the file -> Open with -> Choose another app. Then on the window which will appear find "Photos" and check the default box, and let us know if it works.

If that doesn't work either then I would just try what @Spawn said and that should fix the issue for sure..

Hello
Thanks at all for your help:)
I'm very busy at work so I cannot access to this PC before the week-end.

Special thanks @TheSuperGeek & @DardiM for your translations.
Merci beaucoup;)

Hello
At this time I'm away from home so I cannot try anything, but I have a question:
Before Windows 10 Pro my PC was Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
Not sure if this change what I have to try ?

I think all your windows 10 metro apps are corrupted or something
try opening the png and jpg files with paint, if they open you can try reinstalling windows 10 default metro apps by referring to this site:
How to reinstall all the Windows 10 default apps with PowerShell | Digital Citizen
Thanks @toto
Maybe it is the solution to solve this problem: Need Help - Apps do not launch from start menu and Windows search do not work
Have you ever tried this method ?
I can not wait to try it !

Reset this PC will keep Windows 10 Pro installed, since this operation is performed by the OS and not a Factory Reset (Partition). I recommend to erase your Windows 8/8.1 Factory drive and replace with Windows 10 Recovery discs.

I saw that post that you had problems starting apps from the start menu that's why I thought it would help you to reinstall all the metro apps.
I had this problem earlier but didn't try that app reinstalling thing, I just did a fresh install of windows, I hope that you fix the problem without having to do a fresh install .. :oops:

I never try to reinstall Widows.
Can you tell me if after reinstalling Windows 10, I have to reinstall all my softwares ?

Another question for you @Spawn
What do you mean when you say "I recommend to erase your Windows 8/8.1"? How can I do?

Did you scan with an AV?
I would run Zemana at least, just to be on the safer side...
@Solarquest
I run HitmanPro, Malwarebytes, Adwcleaner and Avast but not Zemana...
Is it enough?

I saw that post that you had problems starting apps from the start menu that's why I thought it would help you to reinstall all the metro apps.

I tried this method but my apps are continuing to be blocked:(
