I am using Windows 8.1 and have downloaded 'classic shell' to my desktop. I want my photos to open with 'Photoscape' but this does not show up in the default programmes list. Could anyone advise how I can change the default?
In my list of steps, the last step says "look for another app on this PC", when you clicked on this you can then browse your Photoscape folder (assuming that you have installed the app and knows where the installed folder is).
"..... I repeat that the photoscape app/ folder does not appear in the list."
It won't appear in the list of suitable apps. You need to click on More Options at the bottom of that list and then Look for another App on this PC which is also at the very bottom. The Program Files window should open so double-click on the "Photoscape" folder then select the Photoscape file.
I've just tried it myself and it does work with Windows 8.1. The only obvious potential problem that I've noticed is that if you open more than one photo then each photo appears in a separate instance of the program - for example, if you open three JPG files you get three Photoscapes opening.
Hi, thanks again but I can see more options and search for another app. I will try to be clearer, photoscape does not appear in the programme file list. I have even tried another install and still it does mot appear.
Apologies, in hindsight I should have mentioned the existence of the Program Files (x86)folder. When I tested PhotoScape I used the 32-bit version of 8.1 and that only has the one Program Files folder so it didn't occur to me at the time to mention it :(
