Open With.. Management

By sbrager ·
The "Open with.." feature of Win7Pro doesn't seem to be working properly. I was trying to open a .jpg file and all that came up was a reminder to register AnyDVD. I right-clicked on the jpg and clicked on "Open with.." which brought up a screen showing a group of programs which could be used and a browse button. I browsed to Adobe Photoshop and clicked on it - the jpg still refused to open to Photoshop.

Next, I used Regedit to get to the "Open list" line and photoshop was listed. I changed the MRU list to place photoshop as the first program to open. I again tried to open the jpg and again the AnyDVD screen opened.

I'm hoping that someone can get me out of this quandary.

I'd start by uninstalling AnyDVD and performing a 'System Restore' back to before you installed it. If you must have this app, re-install it and pay close attention if / when it asks what file types should open with it by default.

Otherwise, you have a 'File Association' problem. File association is how Windows knows what program to use to open a file.

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.
