I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager for the JPEG, PNG, TIFF and BMP format, it works awesome, and I love the built in Edit feature, you can crop and resize instantly. For the GIF's I Use chrome, it's okay.

Even when I set the windows photo viewer to default it will not work properly.

When I double click a gif to open it it still asks what program to open it with but it should use the photo viewer since i set it as default.

Start Menu>Default Programs>Set your Default Programs>Windows Photo Viewer>Choose Defaults for this Program. A small list will appear. Check the file formats you'd like to set as default for this program.

That is exactly what I did however it still asks me what to open it with when I click the file. This is why I have a problem.

The easiest way to find a program is to find it in the start menu and then right click and select open file location.

On my system, it is in C:\Windows\system32\WFS.exe

And yes, what he said, using the browse you can choose it yourself.
Point to the location he said and it should show up.
