I don't want paint.net to be my default image program in Windows 10

Recommended Posts

Although paint.net is a useful editor, it appears that image files are now opening with paint.net by default, although I have never set this as a default program. Although I have tried to change this back, eventually paint net takes over as the default program. Also, I would like my PNG files to be described as PNG files, not as paint.net Images files. This problem never occurred under Windows 7. Could anyone tell me how to stop paint.net taking control of my image files. I'd be happy to do a registry hack.

You can also right-click on an image file and go to the "properties" menu. There, by the "opens with" label, is a "change..." button where you can change the default program for opening that specific filetype

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait
