    Unable to open .png images when double clicking on the file using any pre-installed program/app


    If I right click and select Photo, Paint, etc they will open the image, but the default process will not. Other pictures like .jpg will open correctly when double clicking on file. Had a Microsoft Tier 2 tech remotely logged in the other day and he found that when he created a new profile it will work properly. He tried some sort of Reinstall Repair, but that did not rectify the issue. He's not sure what to do next. Can anyone help?

    :)

    Single-click or double-click?

    As the title says, do you single-click or double-click on your shortcuts to open your apps?

    I'm a fan of single-click, the only downside is that often when I click on a message in de list of my mails in Outlook it can open the mail in a window...
    Not always but besides that, single-click works best for me.
