Windows 7: Cannot view pictures on double click

27 Jul 2010   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Cannot view pictures on double click


In my Windows 7, if I double click on a photo to view it, I get an error from Nero Photosnap Viewer that says "Image01 could not be opened" but if I click on Preview it shows the photo in Windows Photo Viewer.

How can I set it so I can view the photo in WINDOWS PHOTO VIEWER on a double click?

Thank you.


I simply went to DEFAULT PROGRAMS in my Windows 7 and chose Windows Photo Viewer as "Set this program as default".

You have to change the file association for that filetype (.jpg, .png or whatever it is).

To change the file association, right click the file and hit Properties. It should be pretty obvious from there. Write back if its not.
