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 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?     J.T.
