I recently found out that if I am working with a program such as, "Paint", and I have chosen in,

"properties", to use my, "Paint", application to open files, that this, "action" causes other programs to be un-operable, for example if I have a, "gif", saved on my desk top and it was saved for the windows application, it no longer opens, using Windows Picture and Fax, it opens as a, "Paint".

Is there a way to save these so they stay as they were. I guess when I mail one of these off to someone , opps, they get a little surprise, when they try to open it.

The file will open on the recipient's computer according to the settings
on THAT computer, for files of the particular type, bmp, jpg, gif, png, whatever.

I use Irfanview a lot and have associated most filetypes with Irfanview,
but for example, if I had chosen not to associate BMP files with Irfanview,
they would open in Paint, the default.

It always depends on the file 'association'.
