You'll need a new app to open this about link

When clicking a hyperlink in word that points to a jpg file I get the following message

I can open jpg files fine browsing via explorer. This behaviour does not happen in Excel when setting a hyperlink so its something Word related.

I have...
  • Reset default links and ensured .jpg is set to photos app
  • Used Microsoft Office removal tool to remove office and reinstalled manually
  • Deleted the normal template for Word
  • Removed all add-ins and tried Word in Safe mode
Any more pointers would be appreciated.
