Hi,

When I right click on an image file and select "Edit" it opens the file in Paint and I was wondering how I go about changing that to open "Photoshop" instead.

Thanks
Bruce

"Edit" and "open with" are different functions. If you wish to change the edit program you need to make a registry change. You can do this manually or there are utility programs available to do it for you. There is a good guide to the options here:

Change the default image editor application, invoked from Windows Picture and Fax Viewer
