    How do I reset My Pictures to the default setting?

    Since installing the latest update for Photoshop CS5 all of my pictures have the CS5 icon on them and when I click to open the picture it opens in Photoshop.

    Thanks
    Jessie

    Try the fixes listed here File Association Fixes for Windows 7 - The Winhelponline Blog. Read the instructions on that page.
    The only one missing is for png files. Save this code as a .reg to restore png to default.
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.png]
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.png]
