Can someone please remind me how to change the default for the program that opens when I click on a photo to view it. Somehow mine has changed and I want to set it back to how it was.
I have forgotten. Old age I'm afraid is creeping up.
Thanks

What OS?

If XP, right click and choose "open with" and then choose.

If earlier than XP, click once on it, then hold down shift key and right click - then choose "open with".

When you choose a program, tell it to always use that.

Many thanks . Just the reminder I needed .
This old age is a B******* but just think of the alternative.
Thanks again

For what it's worth, I have Irfanview set as default image viewer - it opens it up quick so I can see what it is and if I want any further work done, can then choose the relevant program.
