.jpg file opens w/ AdobePhotoshop

By marytfred ·
I've been trying to get .jpg files to open by default w/ MS PhotoEditor, but it opens w/ Adobe Photoshop instead.

Under view/options/file_types the only PhotoShop listing opens .psd files, not jpg.

Whenever I try to alter the setting for .jpegto include the .jpg, I get a message saying I can't because Photoshop is the default.

If I try to make a new file type with the extension .jpg I get the same message.

I've looked through all the file types listed, and there's none that shows that it opens a .jpg extension.

Any suggestions?

1)JPEG format discards data,You can only save it once.
To open a file
1 Choose File> Open As,select the desired format,and click open
If the file does not open,then the chosen format may not match the file's true format,or the file is damaged.

Try this to reassociate your jpg files. In Windows explorer left click once on any jpg file. Then hold down the shift key and right click to bring up a context menu. On the context menu you will see a new choice that says open with... Now click on open with and you get a dialog box that will allow you to pick an application (like photoshop) to open jpgs with. then before you close the dialog box be sure to check the box that says always use this type of file to open etc... This should reassociate all your jpgs with photoshop.

HIope this helps.
