    How to move "Windows Photo Viewer" to the top of context menu


    I bring back "Windows Photo Viewer" using this tutorial:
    Restore Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    Now, when I click RMB on jpg file and choose "open with..." I can select "Windows Photo Viewer"
    What I want is "Windows Photo Viewer" just under RMB (without using "open with...")

    Hahaha!!! Okay!


    @Przemek89

    If Windows Photo Viewer is your default now, just click on the image or, right click it and choose 'Preview';

    Adding 'Open with Windows Photo Viewer' is doable but quite a convoluted process...

    I assume that I will need to edit registry but I could not find anything working

    In order for this to work without disabling your Photoshop defaults, you'll need to download:

    Image Preview Context Menu for Photo Viewer

    Info

    However, if you want to place the context menu entry at the top, you'll need to add a thing or two to the Reg entries after you've applied them, at:

    Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\shell\Image Preview

    then, you should be good...
