Paint.net messed up my files

Recommended Posts

I was using paint.net for a while an it's been my go to editing program. Until I got an update and then I realised after the update all of my .png (Portable Network Graphic) files were turned into .png (Paint.net file) so while i was able to use the file for editing in paint.net I can't open in any other program and I can't use any of my png files for any other use because nothing can read this new (Paint.net file) .png for instance I can't attach a file to this post due to the website not being able to read the file. I installed paint.net from the official website I would sincerely like any help! Thank you.

This does not seem to be case. Like what I mean is that the file CAN be opened with ONLY paint.net nothing else can read the file websites,not even file browser. The wierd thing is that this is happening to ALL of my png files even the ones which I never edited with paint.net. all of this changes only happens after the update.


The update was in paint.net itself it told me there was an update and I told it to update it after I exit it.

Perhaps this has something to do with the Default Viewer.  Please read this:
