Right Click to Open an Image shows a procedure could not be found

Trying to double-click an image file or right click choosing the option Open on an image file gets this message. The most latest change on the system I could remember was Visual Studio Update. Any troubleshooting to fix this please?

    This may be some sort of corruption of the Photos app.

    I would suggest to try the next:

    1. Go to Settings
    2. Click on Apps
    3. Select Default Apps in the right-hand pane
    4. Enter the image file type in the search field
    5. Click on the default Photos app
    6. A new window will pop up on the screen
    7. Select the new app you want to use to open image files

    If that doesnt work, you can try to reinstall the Photos app running the next Powershell as Admin, then restart:

    $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + ‘AppxManifest.xml’

    Last but not least could be a problem of the Microsoft Store app, you can use the command WSRESET.EXE to reset it.
