    Re: How to set default program to open .jpg files

    When I did the latest Windows Security update, Nero PhotoSnap is not able to open .jpg files. The Windows viewer can open these files using the open with options but I cannot figure out how to make it the default when I click on a .jpg file. I have looked everywhere to find a solution for this issue but cannot find it anywhere. Can anyone please help.

    Most of the times the Open with context menu is not there without using Shift. I dont know if it is still required under Windows 2000 or XP or Vista. It just could be a holdover habit from my old Windows 9x days.

    Re: How to set default program to open .jpg files

    Can you use the below reg file to restore Nero Photoshop Viewer settings for jpg and jpeg files, just copy the below and paste it in Notepad.

    ----------copy inside only----------
    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpeg]
    @="NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpeg"
    "PerceivedType"="image"
    "Content Type"="image/jpeg"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpeg\OpenWithList]
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpeg\OpenWithList\PhotoSnapViewer.exe]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpg]
    @="NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpg"
    "PerceivedType"="image"
    "Content Type"="image/jpeg"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpg\OpenWithList]
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpg\OpenWithList\PhotoSnapViewer.exe]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpeg]
    @="JPEG Image"
    "FriendlyTypeName"="JPEG Image"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpeg\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\Program Files\\Nero\\Nero8\\Nero PhotoSnap\\PhotoSnapViewer.exe,1"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpeg\shell]
    @="open"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpeg\shell\open]
    @="&Open"
    "FriendlyAppName"="Nero PhotoSnap Viewer"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpeg\shell\open\command]
    @=""C:\\Program Files\\Nero\\Nero8\\Nero PhotoSnap\\PhotoSnapViewer.exe\" \"%1\""

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpg]
    @="JPEG Image"
    "FriendlyTypeName"="JPEG Image"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpg\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\Program Files\\Nero\\Nero8\\Nero PhotoSnap\\PhotoSnapViewer.exe,1"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpg\shell]
    @="open"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpg\shell\open]
    @="&Open"
    "FriendlyAppName"="Nero PhotoSnap Viewer"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NeroPhotoSnapViewer.Files8.jpg\shell\open\command]
    @=""C:\\Program Files\\Nero\\Nero8\\Nero PhotoSnap\\PhotoSnapViewer.exe\" \"%1\""

    After that save the notepad as Nero_JPG.reg and then double click on it and merge into the registry.

    Can you tell me how to configure the registry so all the users connecting to a Teminal server will use the IE as the default program to view .jpg files? Thanks
