Open With... can't find my program

    Open With... can't find my program

    I love Jasc Paint Shop Pro and have become quite good at working with it. I right click on a jpeg and try to choose it as my default for viewing photos but it doesn't appear as an option. I right click on PSP and look to see where it is, it's in Program files... I try to get the OPEN WITH program to find it in program files but it doesn't show up.

    How can I get PSP as my default to view photos? Is this another way Microsoft gets you to use their products?

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Jasc Software Inc\Paint Shop Pro 7\" Is the location of my PSP7

    Windows 7 Pro plus Windows 8.1 Pro VM

    In search, type ... Default Programs

    In the window that opens choose ... Set your default programs
    Find Paint Shop Pro in the list and have it associate with all the files it can handle.


    Choose ... Associate a file type or protocol with a program.
    There you can select JPG, JPEG, PNG etc to associate with Paint Shop Pro.

    Having said all that, Paint Shop Pro is really a Editor not a Viewer.
    Personally I wouldn't use it for just viewing. I'd get something else for that.

    Strange, PSP7 isn't showing up there either.

    Is there a way to get minimize and maximize on Chrome?

    Menu x found PSP here: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
