When it comes to photo editing, we don’t know yet whether Windows 10 will come with photo editor, but if you want to be able to do that without the need for a third party photo editor, Windows 10 on the Universal PC Platform comes with the photo editing software called Photo Studio. It’s a simple picture viewer which doesn’t require any additional software besides the default photo editor installed on your computer.

Once you have created a few pictures that you want to edit, click on the image editor which can be found under File menu in Windows 10 and select it from the list.

For example, if I were to select Photo App on my PC, I would see the image editor icon on the menu and this should show the name of the photo editor app which I simply need to edit.
