Resetting My Pictures to the default setting.

#1
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.
