Windows 10: Win 10 Not Remembering Default Programs

    Win 10 Not Remembering Default Programs


    I'm experiencing a problem with images attached to an email. Each time I click on an image to view it, I am presented with a menu asking me to select the default program. I check the 'default' box, I select Picasa photo viewer, and I see the photo.

    But, I have to do exactly the same thing again, the next time I want to view an image. The default setting is not being saved.

    Thoughts?

    TIA

    Have you try under the Default Apps >> add it there >>> Choose default apps by file type

    Picasa is set as the default photo viewer under Settings menu. Also under for defaults for file types, Picasa is the default for .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, and .png and still doesn't work as noted above.

    The problem might be with Picasa not Windows 10. Take a read on this and see if it can help
