the picture format (are they jpg's) is associated with your browser to view. Hence the opening screen to open the browser. Go into Windows Explorer-Tools-Folder options-file types. Scroll to the type you are wanting to view (jpg?) and on 'Change' select Imaging (say). Apply and in future they will be opened by the selected program. Alternatively download IrfanView and associate your graphics files with it. It is a facility on the program.
