Question Help with default application

Hi all-

I was hoping someone could help me out with setting up a default application in Windows XP.

  • When I open any photo/image the default application that opens the the photo/image is Microsoft Photo Editor

    I would like the default application to be Windows Picture And Fax Viewer

Cheers and thanks for your help!

you can try right clicking on the photo/image you want to open and select open with, choose program..., a windows box should open select "select the program from a list", choose the program you would like to open your photo/image with, put a check in the "always use the selected program to open this kind of file" click ok. From then on you should open with whatever program you selected
