    Changed the default image editor; Access denied :(


    So I wanted to change the program that opens if I use the "Edit" context menu option on images. I didn't find a guide for Win 8 so I thought it would be pretty much the same like in Win 7. I followed this one:
    Change your default image editing software - Windows 7 Forums
    My problem is, when I click "Edit", this error message appeared: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
    Well, I can edit images normally, but I want to use two different programs for "Open" and "Edit".
    Please help

    Did you put " around the %1 as shown: "%1"
    if you don't and if your image filename has spaces, it would cause problem.

    I found out that I used the wrong kind of quotation marks, because I just copied it from the thread.
