Unable to open/access .albm files



Thanks for reaching out to the HP Support community!


Let's try these steps:


Let's make sure that the default programs for Opening Files are selected as the HP Photosmart Essentials software.

  • Go to the folder containing '.albm' files.
  • Right, click on the '.albm'file. and go to 'properties'.
  • Select 'Opens With' > Select 'Change'
  • Select the Photosmart Essentials software as the default app for opening files.
  • Click on "Apply' and 'OK'

Try opening the file again.
