I want to use different softwares as default softwares, but some are in portable mode and do not show up in

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Default Programs

I can see ''potplayer'' in the list, but I want to add ''nomacs'' to view my pictures, instead of ''windows photo viewer''. Nomacs do not show in the list of ''Set Default Programs'''. In nomacs, there is an options to make it the default program to show the picture, but I get an error:

Activation of app windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy!microsoft.windows.immersivecontrolpanel failed with error: This app can't be activated by the Built-in Administrator. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.

Instead of going to "set your default programs" , go to "associate a file type or protocol with a program. Click on the file extension and just click change program.


Hope this helps.
