Image association won't stay

I just switched laptops and had a friend re-install my software. He did not select Photoshop 7.0 as the default viewer during install, so now everything is stuck on “Microsoft Photo Editor”. I want Photoshop7.0

So, I right clicked on an image and PS7 was not in the list. I browsed to Adobe>Photoshop 7.0 and clicked the exe file. It went into the list. I highlighted it but there is no option to check-mark the box under there.

So I went to Tools> File Types and selected each type of jpg jpeg and the other one and again selected photoshop and chose it as default. Again, it has not changed all or any images to that as default.

Did I do the steps incorrectly?

What do I need to do?

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Did you try to check in PS7 options if there is something that allow to associate the software with all image formats? In most graphical software I used this is possible. This should solve :slight_smile:
