Windows Picture & Fax Viewer editing

When the 'open picture for editing' button is selected, the editor opened is always Microsoft Paint.

Is there any way of choosing an alternative editor which can be accessed from Pic and Fax viewer via the same button?

If you rightclick on the 'open picture for editing' button and then choose 'Open With' you will get a choice of programs.

I am using XP pro.
I do not see an 'open picture for editing' button, only 'open with'. This changes the association for viewing, which I do not want.
I just want pic and fax viewer to go to a different editor from Paint when opening pic for editing

Yes you press Open with then choose your editing Program from the list and put a tick in the box to always use that program

You say

"I do not see an 'open picture for editing"

but in the original question you say

"When the 'open picture for editing' button is selected"

Both can't be right can they?

When you are looking at the picture (you have opened it to view it) in Windows Picture & Fax Viewer

Instead of leftclicking - you RIGHTCLICK on the 'open picture for editing' button and then choose 'Open With' you will get a choice of programs.

Yes, my mistake.
I misunderstood your instruction.
All is well now - thank you all.
