    Right click on the file, go to Open With... then Choose Program. Choose Windows Picture and Fax Viewer and check the little box that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".

    It does not open

    Hi,
    Thanx for the reply buddy. I tried that but it does not work. It does not even show the thumbnails. I have to still open it with IE or paint. All the pics are in jpeg format.

    What happens when you try to open the pictures in the Windows Picture and fax Viewer?

    Where are you trying to open the pictures from?

    Try this: Right click on Start> Explore> My Documents> My Pictures> open any folder you want by double clicking on folder on the left> On View above, to the right of Folders, check Filmstrip> then right click on any of the pictures> open with> choose Windows P&F Viewer.

    See if that will work for you.
