I have had to reload xp & my software.Before when I opened a saved photo it used to open in serif photoplus (my prefered software).Now all my saved photo's open in"windows picture & fax viewer".How do I get them to open in photoplus?

Right-click a photo - choose "Open with" from the context menu - find your Serif Photoplus, and tck the box "Always open with....."

Or you may be able to open Photoplus, go to Tools, and select which types of files you would like Photoplus to open.

Thanks DieSse
Right clicking a photo works for that one photo but I was wondering if there is a way of making them all open automaticaly.There isn't a tools option in photoplus

It works for whatever file type you choose if you pick a jpeg all jpegs should open with it .Any other format you have needs to be done as well.

Did you remember to tick the box "Always open with"?
