Microsoft had an attempt to lure Windows 10 users into exploring the newly implemented features coming to the Photos App. Meanwhile, the company also tried the waters with a brand new idea: how about changing the name of the app to something more appropriate for boasting its new features?

Well, it looks like Microsoft was only kidding about changing the name of its photo application. The Photos app is here to stay, while Story Remix leaves the scene.

Insiders didn’t approve

Microsoft decided to reverse the Photos & Video section which was previously known as Story Remix back to Microsoft Photos, and this may have happened due to angry Insider feedback.

The Insiders were probably caught off guard by the update that morphed Microsoft Photos app into Story Remix. Story Remix is a name that’s derived from a feature set that the company showed off during its Windows 10 Fall Creators teaser event. The feature that was the most highlighted in the Story Remix will not make it into the Windows Fall Creators Update.

The Windows team renamed Story Remix to Photos and Videos, and the move was probably targeted again at luring users into realizing that they can do loads of things, at least more than just view photos in the application.

Back to plain old Photos

After switching to Photos and Videos, the Windows team decided to go back to the straightforward name of Photos.

All in all, the Microsoft Photos app’s name is back to its origins, and its current title may be the most appropriate for what the app actually is.
