I have Windows Media Player 10, and everytime I open an image file, the image file opens in Windows Media Player! Before, it used to open in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

Can someone help me with the settings which I cannot, for the life of me, seem to change.

Hi Canadian, :thumbsup: to BC

Your file associations have changed somehow. To change your image files to open with the picture and fax viewer, right click on a picture on your computer. On the drop down menu go the selection Open With. Another drop down menu will appear and on this menu choose the selection Choose Program.

On the window that appears you will see several different programs you can choose to open your images with. First select Windows Picture And Fax Viewer by left clicking on it and then place a check mark in the box that says Always use the selected program to open this kind of file. Now click OK and the image you used should open in the picture and fax viewer.

Now when ever you click on this type of file it will open with the program you assigned it to.
There is no justice, there is just us.
