Set Paint.Net (from windows app store) as default editor in context menu

Recommended Posts

I bought paint.net to support the development und wanted to set it as described to the default editor for pictures.

 

With the old program this was no problem. regedit-> HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\shell\edit\command and change the value %systemroot%\system32\mspaint.exe “%1″  to C:\Program Files\paintnet\pdn.exe „%1“

 

Now it does not work, because the programm is under "WindowsApps" and after i change it windows tells me "You don't have the clearance to access it"

 

What can i do to get it done?

Tank You for your replies, but i do no understand completely.

Paintnet is installed under C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\dotPDNLLC.paint.net_4.105.6913.0_x64__h55e3w7q8jbva\

 

What do you mean exactly?

paintdotnet: protocol can be used to launch the app so that you can specify command-line parameters.

For example, you can go to Start -> Run and type in paintdotnet:"path to file1.png" path_to_file_2.png then both images will be opened (even if Paint.NET is already open)

Also, from a batch file you would use start paintdotnet:

 

There's some more discussion over here where it was troubleshooted recently:
