Changing screen ikon link to program

  telkell 17:28 25 Feb 2003

All my photos in MyDoc folders had ikons related to my editing program 'PhotoPlus 8'. When I clicked a particular one the picture would open in that program. I don't know what I did but the ikons have all changed and when I click any one now it opens the program called 'PagePlus 7'.
This is not a disaster, but it is inconvenient.
How can I get things back to normal?

Right-click an icon and choose 'Open with...' - select Photo Plus 8

Or if you're using Win 9x, hold down the shift key while right clicking the file, to get the "Open With" option. Also don't forget to tick the little box which says "Always use the selected program to open this type of file" (or similar words).

Thanks, Jazzypop, I tried what you suggest, but 'open with' was not one of the options on the drop down list...only 'Open' which opens PagePlus.
I have win 98 SE if this is relevant.

We must have been typing at the same time, telkel.

Thanks,Maj, You have cracked it for me!
Just a couple of clicks and my status quo has been restored.
The PCA Helproom is certainly the place to come to relieve stress! Thanks again to both.
