select default programs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to set .jpg and .jpeg and .bmp default program to Windows Photo Viewer.  I tried control panel - set program associations and selected all the types of images that I want Windows Photo Viewer to be the default for.  Clicked save and then tried to open a .jpg.  Nothing stuck and the new windows Photo program opened.  

    How can one set program associations other than what Microsoft seems to think you want?

  • Hello Old Fat Cat,

    MSDN = Microsoft Developer Network. This does not seem like a developer question so I recommend you look to Answers.Microsoft.com as those are the user forums.

    NOTE: For early details on the latest release of windows, I highly recommend joining the Windows Insider program.

  • ooops.  Sorry.  Two things going on at once.  I'll pay more attention next time.
