[Gimp-user] Why jpg files created by gimp can't be edited and saved with microsoft photo?

I edited some photos with GIMP 2.10.6 and exported them as jpg files.  Then I
wanted to do some quick edits of the exported jpg files with Microsoft Photo
(Windows 10 operating system).  When I attempt to save my changes (or a copy of
the changes) the following message is displayed:
"Oops! We couldn't save that one."

I thought perhaps my Microsoft Photo App was corrupt, so I ran the repair and
reset commands under Microsoft Photo App settings and neither helped.

When I attempt to edit and save jpg files that were not created with GIMP,
Microsoft Photo works fine (note these files are in the same folder as the GIMP
exported jpg).  So the problem is unique to those jpg files created with GIMP.

When I right clicked on the jpg files created with GIMP and selected properties,
I noticed in the "General Tab" the following option was unchecked:
"This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this
computer __ Unblock".
So I checked the "Unblock" box and hit "Apply" then "OK".  However this didn't
help.  Still unable to save it in Microsoft Photo.

Has anyone else experienced this issue?  Why is this happening and what can I do
to fix it?

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
