Okidoki pal

Below is 3 files (a .jpg a .png and a .psd) save all 3 files to your hdd (follow the tutorial Open With - Change Default Program making sure you assign "photoshop" as the default program for all 3. Once you've done this then 2x click on each file (they should open up with PS) .... let us know what results you get.
well, i did it all, but now picasa does not open as my default image editor.what i want is for photoshop to open jpegs in the EDIT menu when you right click the image.

Okidoki pal, i sorta get what you're trying to do. I've had a look into it and there are a few registry keys that need to be changed to achieve what your looking to do.
I've tried out a little free prog (that needs no installation) that will give you the same options without the need to edit the registry Default Programs Editor hopefully this will help you out

Hello Mate,

Try this if your confident

Quote:
I was in the same boat because I was quite happy to have Vista use Windows Photo Gallery to preview my pictures on a double-click, as typically I just want to look at them without having to open a whole new application to do so, but wanted Photoshop Elements to open on a right-click Edit. After lots of searching I've concluded that it isn't possible to do in Vista using the GUI, but if you feel confident enough, you can change it in the registry. And here's how:
  1. Open up the registry editor (Regedit.exe) as an administrator
  2. Under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, find the file extension you want to change (in this case .jpg)
  3. Take a note of what is listed under this key as the Default value (in this case it was "jpegfile")
  4. Find this entry further down under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT - it'll be located past the end of the file extensions bit
  5. Expand this entry and you will probably find three subkeys - CLSID, DefaultIcon and Shell
  6. Expand "Shell" and under here will be a subkey for each right-click menu item (in this case I had Edit, Open and Print)
  7. Under "Edit" you'll find another key called "Command", the default value of which is the program currently used to open the file when editing
  8. Change this value to the full path of your chosen editing program (in my case it was "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 7.0\PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe")
  9. After the final speech mark you will need to add a space, then a percent sign and the number one (e.g. Editor.exe" %1) - this tells the program not only to open, but to load the picture file you were right clicking on at the same time.
Hopefully that should work for you - it did for me!

Try this:
Select a jpeg. Right click and select "Open with..." From that window select "Choose default program" at the bottom. In the next window if PS is shown select it, if it doesn't show click browse and browse to PS exe file and select. Make sure the check box that reads "Always use the selected program for this type of file" is checked. Click OK. CLOSE Windows explorer and reopen. See if that works!
