Can you right click on the Printmaster file in the start Open programs, and then click on Properties ?
If you can, what does it show ?

My PM program runs, nut will not open PM files on the desltop.
If the program runs you should see it in Task Manager / Processes.
What does it show for Image Path Name ?

Can you open that folder and post a screenshot?

Or try Davids method above to see if you can find the path by opening the program and looking for the path in task manager.

In Explorer Folder Options make sure you have Hide extensions for known file types unchecked

No, that doesn't help.

I was looking for a screenshot like you did with the open with window.

But I wanted the screenshot of the open PrintMaster folder you found in program files (x86).
