I usually find it's something different on the PCs. A recent finding was privacy protection can interfere with normal operation in this area.
It's not a setting.
I use an android app which requires you to open photos using a "click and hold" feature. So you press and hold the touch screen and your photo opens and stays open as long as you hold your finger down. Releasing it closes the photo. There is a web browser version of this app, which I use on two different Windows 10 computers. One computer allows me to click my left mouse button and hold it on the photo to accomplish the same thing as on mobile. The other, when I click and hold the left mouse button, just opens and closes the photo instantly. Browser choice doesn't seem to make any difference. I am using two different mice, but not sure if it's a setting in Windows 10, or a setting on my mouse. I don't even know what this function is called in formal tech terms.
