    Double click does not open default program

    I have Windows 8.1 and on my desktop are several PNG files and shortcuts. When I double click on any of them the program that opens is Directory Opus (I use this instead of Windows Explorer). I checked the defaults and it is NOT Directory Opus. Can anyone help me or point me in the right direction?

    Right click on the file (not link) /open with /choose default program / and associate with windows photo viewer or Pictures ( metro app)
    P.S. "open with" may be under "x64" heading.
