Hi John,
 To associate BMP files with Photoshop instead of Paint , do the following activities:
 
  • In explorer, click on view/options/file types
You should get a window that looks like this:
 
  • Scroll down until you see Bitmap image and click on it so as to make it the current selection:
 
  • Click on
you will see this:
  • then change the association by clicking then open then
 
  • then browse to the correct program (in this example, i use PaintShop Pro) 
 
  • Click on , then select your program using the browse box keys:
 
  • Click  Then your Browse dialog will look like this:
 
 
 
  • Click  to make it so
 
  • Click on  , then  again and you are back in explorer , ready to open BMPS with your program of choice..

Mike -
 
Using Explorer, when I double click on a graphic, the graphic opens in Paint, which sucks.  How can I make it open in Photoshop?
