Restore/change default program

  Teddy Jeff 14:54 04 Jan 2008

I have installed Ashampoo's Photo Commander 6 and it has installed itself as my computers default viewer is there a way of restoring the Windows XP Camera and Scanner program as the default without having to uninstall Photo Commander 6?
Thanks for any help and advice anyone can give me.

from explorer
tools>folder options>file tab>select file type and change it to the one you want

You need to reset the program that the file type opens. In <My Computer> using the <Folder Options> in the <tools> drop down. Now click the <File Types> tab then find the relevent extensions and you can now change the <Opens with> to the correct program.
