    IE used to be the defauly application for opening jpg's. All photos would open up in IE and could be browsed through using the forward/back buttons.

    My wife just installed MGI Photosuite which took over all jpg extensions and made them open in Photosuite. I uninstalled Photosuite and tried to reassociate jpgs with IE using View-Folder Options in Explorer.

    The problem is that now when I open multiple jpgs, IE opens a seperate time for each jpg? Anyone have any solutions for this?

    Thanks very much

    you need to go to folder options in the control panel to change it.

    start/settings/control panel/folder options/ general/browse folder
    select & apply then ok

    that should do it for you

    thanks for helping out - I followed your instructions but multiple copies of IE continue to open for each jpg I select

    let me make sure I followed your instructions correctly

    from control panel I clicked on View -> Folder Options and there was something to do with browsing folders and viewing them in the same or different windows

    I have also created a new problem now as in trying out different options I may have changes browse from 'same' to 'different' - now when I try to access folder options from the control panel I get a message "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on your computer. Please contact your system adminsitrator for details'????

    Hi Endlessart,

    Usually in a program like ACDSee, Paint Shop Pro, and presumably also in Photosuite, there's an option to restore the default file associations.
    Before uninstalling such a program it's always advisable to do that, reboot, and only then uninstall the program.
    Otherwise you do need to restore the default file associations yourself.

    Try this:

    Paste the bold into Notepad, save as Jpeg.reg, and doubleclick it.
    Answer 'yes' when you're asked whether you'd like to have the contents of your reg file merged into the registry

    This will restore the default JPG/JPE/JPEG file associations.

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpe]
    "Content Type"="image/jpeg"
    @="jpegfile"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpe\ShellEx]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpe\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}]
    @="{7376D660-C583-11d0-A3A5-00C04FD706EC}"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpeg]
    @="jpegfile"
    "Content Type"="image/jpeg"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpeg\ShellEx]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpeg\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}]
    @="{7376D660-C583-11d0-A3A5-00C04FD706EC}"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpg]
    @="jpegfile"
    "Content Type"="image/jpeg"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpg\ShellEx]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpg\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}]
    @="{7376D660-C583-11d0-A3A5-00C04FD706EC}"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile]
    @="JPEG Image"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\CLSID]
    @="{25336920-03F9-11cf-8FD0-00AA00686F13}"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell\open]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell\open\command]
    @="\"C:\\PROGRA~1\\INTERN~1\\iexplore.exe\" -nohome"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell\open\ddeexec]
    @="\"file:%1\",,-1,,,,,"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell\open\ddeexec\Application]
    @="IExplore"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell\open\ddeexec\Topic]
    @="WWW_OpenURL"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\PROGRA~1\\INTERN~1\\iexplore.exe,8"


    Afterwards, reboot, and see whether this fixes the problem.

    Good luck,
