Programme Association with a Picture

  Mike 10:04 10 Apr 2005

When utilising Explorer in windows XP Home to look at my photo’s I have come across thumbnails which have no picture even though they are .jpg files. When I click on these to open them I am asked to associate the file type with a programme. This I try to do and associate them with XP Picture and Fax Viewer. The little box to make this permenant is greyed out so although it works on this occasion I get the same problem every time. Can you tell me how to make this permanent and when is wrong with the tick box that is grey out so cannot be used.

Right click on pic - properties - open with - choose program - select which you want, tick box always use this program to open this type of file.
