3. Components > Windows Picture and Fax Viewer

Name

Windows Picture and Fax Viewer

Synopsis

The Windows Picture and Fax Viewer isn't a standalone application in the traditional sense, but rather a simple viewer window. For a better image viewer, try ACDSee-32 (http://www.acdsee.com) or Paint Shop Pro (http://www.jasc.com). You could even assocate image files with your web browser.

TIP

image with no caption

When Windows XP is first installed, the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is the default viewer for these image formats: .emf, .gif, .jpeg, .bmp, .png, .tif, and .wmf. Unfortunately, making another program the default image viewer will not disable the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. To remedy this, open the Registry Editor, go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers, and delete the ShellImagePreview key entirely.
