JPEG files are opened with Adobe Reader!

October 2016


Downloaded JPEG files are automatically open in Abode Reader which does not support that file type. How can I change the default program for opening JPEGs?


  • Right click on any .jpg picture and select "Properties"
  • Under the "General" tab (which should be what is opened up first), you'll see "Opens with: Adobe Reader".
  • To the right, click "Change" and select "Windows photo gallery"
