For a while, it seemed Microsoft was taking heed of the feedback they received from Windows 10 Insiders when they renamed their version of the photo viewer app in Windows 10 from Photos to Story Remix, appearing to name the app after only one of its features.

Now, however, it appears Microsoft is forging ahead with the change, with regular Windows 10 users finding their photo viewer now has a surprise new name.

The name has been criticized for being unintuitive, and likely to lead to confusion.

While not a major issue, it does raise questions once again of Microsoft supposedly soliciting feedback from Windows 10 Insiders and then simply ignoring it.

The update has been rolling out slowly over the last few days. Have our readers received the update? Let us know below.
