I installed a digital image editing program (PhotoPlus 11), and now everytime I want to open anything from My Pictures, it opens in this program. I think I may have made the program the default manager for all the image file types I thought I might be likely to use (via the installation wizard on the CD). I would rather have Windows Picture Manager as the default for viewing my pictures, but I can’t find it as a program on my computer. Where do I go to change it back? I have Windows XP SP2 Home Version.
To get the association back on image files, right click one of your images. Click the Open With option and select Choose Program.
In the choose program dialog box select Microsoft Office Picture Manager and tick the box below that reads Always use the selected program to open this type of file.
Click okay and this will fix the problem. Keep in mind you’ll have to do this with each type of image file (eg; jpg, gif, etc.).
