Internet explorer open with option not there?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to download an image file from my email, it's automaticaly viewed in paint.  When I first had IE9 I was given an Open With option which allowed me to choose what to open the file in, ie: paint, nero photo viewer, etc.

    How do I change the default image opener? or how do I get the Open With option??? Help??

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the post!

    Open the Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs

    Select Set your default programs, click Paint, on the right-pane, select Choose defaults for this program. Uncheck the format that you don't want to open it with Paint. Then click Save.
