Does Windows 10 come with Windows Live Photo Gallery?

Keep in mind that this program is discontinued and it’s not officially supported by Microsoft now, especially for Windows 10 as they have now the Photos app for Windows 10. So, it’s possible that you will face problems such as Gallery Error 0X8007000b or Photo Gallery Has Stopped Working.

Microsoft’s replacement is the Windows Photos App, which is not bad in my opinion, but lacks a lot of the features WPG has which I have come to depend on over the years, among them- preserving metadata back to the image files.
