Go
start orb > default programs >associate a file or protocol with a program
find the extensions eg, jpg, bmp. double click and select the changed default program. Also, note right click on the say *.jpg and you select "open with" if you want to open it with another program like an editor.

Your file 62 does not have an extension. Copy then paste it as a copy to protect the original. Them use "rename" (right click on file copy) and add the extension .png. How does this go?

Assuming Windows Photo Viewer is still installed I'm out of suggestions. Someone else may come along with a suggestion. It may help to comment what is opening other image formats (eg. jpg, gif, tif).

What's interesting is they have a .png extension but are using a .gif icon,





Here's the different icons,

Where did you get that image? It's pretty small in size too. (4KB)

How to change Picture Viewer frame color to black?
Hi everyone... I know how to change the color of windows, etc. but I'd like to specifically change the frame around the pictures to black. Black is better to the eye than the default white because it doesn't blind and enhances the viewing of any photography, especially dark ones. Thanks!
