Windows Photo Viewer - edit options?

Hi. Can anyone tell me how to remove some of the options that appear in the 'open with' drop-down box in Windows Photo Viewer: I have searched the registry in vain.. Not sure else where to look. Thanks!

Thanks! I had been looking for specific Windows Photo Viewer keys..

However, I still can't seem to get rid of the options within WPV to open the jpg in Microsoft Office Picture Manager or Windows Media Center. Does that need a different tweak?

The registry entry now looks like this (and options like MS Word & Google Chrome no longer appear in WPV):

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.jpg\OpenWithList]
"MRUList"="bghi"
"b"="mspaint.exe"
"g"="PhotoViewer.dll"
"h"="DXTBmp.exe"
"i"="Photoshp.exe"

I don't use MS office.

What is "h"="DXTBmp.exe" ? According to tinterweb, it is something to do with a flight simulator?

You could try nir sofer's little portable programs such as open with view nir sofer

Yes, DXTBmp.exe is a great programme for working with all kinds of graphics files (especially dds), editing alpha channels, mips and so on. I've used it for 20 years now (and yes, I use it for flight simulator terrain files mostly!)

windows picture viewer is pretty ****ty. You can't scroll up and down on images if you want the image to display in its actual size. Plus, you can't have it so the image is its real size by default so you're constantly hitting the "resize" button. Plus it doesn't display the animations on...
