How to set default program to open files

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,

I have installed a lot of photo editing software in my computer and I mostly work on pictures. I have a lot of pictures to browse, but by double clicking it, it uses adobe Photoshop to view the file, which takes longer time to open. What I want to use is the windows photo gallery.

How can I make windows use the photo gallery whenever I will double click it?

How to set default program to open files


Dear Damonkeith,

There are simple three steps for your problem. Just open my computer and open that folders where your pictures lying. Just right  click on that picture and you see the menu


now click on "open with"

Then click on "Choose Program ".

Then select the program that you want to use to open your picture and check the box "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file " and press 'OK'.

That's it dear. I have windows XP but same procedure will adopt in windows vista.
