How can I change what program opens my images

  dc_alias 15:45 15 Feb 2006

I use Windows xp, and recently installed Photoshop and Image ready on to my PC. Since installing Image Ready whenever I double click on an jpg or gif image to just open it to view in Window picture and fax editor it now opens in Image Ready. How can I change this to open up in Windows instead as it was doing before I installed Image Ready?

Thanks Dc_Alias

Right click on the icon and choose Open With, then choose from list.

right click on a picture thumb/icon and select "open with", you should see "windows picture and fax viewer" but ignore it and choose the "choose program" tab at the bottom, now from the list you should be able to "windows picture and fax viewer" highlight it and put a tick in the box marked "always use selected program....." then click on "ok", done.
