• "Edit" right-click option for pictures
    3 replies, posted
It used to be the case that opening a picture would open it in Windows Picture Viewer (or whatever it's called) but right clicking it and choosing "Edit" would open Paint.NET. However I switched from Windows Picture Viewer to Picasa and now pictures open in Picasa but also clicking "Edit" opens Picasa. How can I change which program edits pictures but not change which programs they open in by default?
Windows won't let you do what you're trying to achieve. Sorry. :(
Open regedit, navigate to [code]HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\shell\edit\command[/code] and change the value of (Default) to [code]"[I]path to image editor[/I]" "%1"[/code]
Bitchin'. I knew it was the registry somewhere but couldn't find it.
