  2. opening .JPG with other the default app

    I want to keep default..When you right click on a .jpg image the context menu

    has an option of "open with" the app Smart pix manager does not appear nor does it show when you select "choose another app"

    cannot change default app for jpg files

    Hi KH,

    Setting a default program or app to open a file doesn't restrict other apps or programs that support the same file type to open it. With your .jpg file opening with Photo viewer, it appears that Photo viewer is set as the default program. If you want to
    use the other program as the default .jpg viewer, then let's make sure that it's properly selected as the default program. Make sure to close both your Photo viewer and Irfranview apps first before doing the changes.

    To associate a file type or protocol with a program, follow the steps below:

    • Open Control Panel.
    • Click Programs, then Default Programs.
    • In the right pane, click Associate a file type or protocol with a program.
    • Locate and click .jpg extension and click the Change Program option in the upper left corner of the page.
    • Select the program or app you want .jpg file to open with. If the app you want to use doesn't appear under
      Other options, then click on More apps.
    • Once you've selected the app or program, click OK and then
      Close
      .

    Try opening a .jpg file and see if it opens with your selected app or program.

    Let us know if you need further help regarding this matter.

    Regards.
