Are you talking about thumbnails within paint.net or in those shown when using your file explorer?

How did you set Paint.NET as the default JPG program? During the Paint.NET installer, or through some other control panel in Windows?

When I click on "open with" it asks if I want to use paint net as default program & I put a check there

but now I went back to PhotoFiltrer the default & have no problem

There are two "verbs" that a program like Paint.NET can be registered for: "Edit", and "Open".

Paint.NET will register for "Edit," which leaves the default double-click "Open" action pointing at the Windows Preview thingy. This is generally what you want.

You can only get Paint.NET registered for "Open" if you do your own hacking. I don't recommend setting Paint.NET as the handler for "Open" (double-click), and there will be no "fix" for this. Paint.NET's job does not include handling thumbnails for everyone else.
