Question How do I set Windows Picture & Fax Viewer as default?


I have Windows Picture & Fax Viewer and Nero Photo Snap. Nero Photo Snap is part of Nero Suite which I installed several months ago. Since then, Nero Photo Snap tries to open pictures but then it always gives me a message that says that it can't open the pictures, any picture. I also have Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.

How do I set Windows Picture & Fax Viewer as the default program to open pictures?

Right click on picture>Open with>Choose Program...
Select 'Windows Picture and Fax Viewer'
Check the box 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'
Press 'OK'
Repeat for other file types, shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
