    When I view an image attachment in Outlook Express the image is coming up in Photoshop. How can I change to another default viewer?

    Thanks in advance for your help.....

    it's tied into your general file/file type settings

    open a folder that has pics in it

    click or mouse over a pic file type you want to change so it's highlighted,
    hold shift key down
    right click
    look for 'open with', click it
    you get a menu selection of programs to select from to open the file
    pick the one you want (iexplore, or whatever)
    check mark the 'always use this program...'

    now you've reset the default viewing program for that file type
    repeat for other file types

    You can also go to start>settings>folder options>file types tab>set things the way you wish with any extension.
