Hello,

How do I change my settings so that Adobe Reader is NOT the default application used when downloading a JPEG image? Everytime is save a JPEG, it automatically opens Abode Reader which does not support that file type. I'd like to be able to open the image in my Photo Gallery.

Thanks,

Hi.

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"

Good luck.

Most easy way would be to right click on a jpeg file
choose open with
click on "always open with " option
click /browse to the program that you want to be used

There is another way too

Go to start menu and type

default programs and press enter

Now click on ''Associate a filetype or protocol with a program

Navigate to .jpeg and change it to windows photo viewer
