Changing the Default Graphics App

by Barbara J. Feldman on April 6, 2004

Although Picture and Fax Viewer is the default graphics viewing application for Windows XP, you can easily change this. Open Windows Explorer, and then right-click on any picture file. Select Open With, and then (even if your graphic program is listed) click on Choose Program. Now highlight your graphics program, and check the box titled “Always use the selected program to open this kind of file”. Repeat the process for each file extension (just as .gif or .jpg) you want to open this way.
