    Windows 7 HP 64bit, Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center 64BIT


    I use IrfanView which is a similar program and it shows up in Default Programs and Open With context menu so it must be the other programs are not fully compatible with Windows 8.1. Since a lot of these programs are free, the developers probable have not got around to fully implementing them for 8.1.

    I guess that this is a possibility.

    I'm sure that they will eventually update them though.

    Well, it was an intersting discussion. I myself do not really have a problem. I was just thinking how my neighbor would deal with it.

    Agreed. It could be an issue for those not familiar with the alternative methods of setting file associations.
