cannot change .gif default from IE to windows photo viewer (photo viewer missing)

I recently had to reformat my computer, and find my gif files opening in internet explorer again. I have been trying to reset the default back to windows photo viewer, same as the .jpgs, .pngs, etc, but the option to choose the photo viewer is not there. Also, when I tried to change the gif default in the set default programs, it continues to stay static on Internet explorer.

I know there is a way to get Windows photo viewer back into the open with list, I have done so in the past, though I can't for the life of me remember how to do so. Any input would be greatly appreciated on this matter.
