    How to return pixia as default jpg file viewer/opener

    I activated win10 MSpaint and it "captured" all my files as the primary file opener. When I go to default files to change win 10 settings is does not show pixia as a choice. It used to because that's how I set it up two years ago.
    thanks for all help that comes in very elementary fixes.

    I can still open jpg files one at a time with Pixia but I want the mass of file to be associated with pixia not mspaint.

    Right click on a JPEG. Click "Open With". Select "Choose Another App". There's a checkbox to always use the selected app to open JPEGs. If Pixia isn't shown, there's an option to browse to its executable. (Scroll down.)

    There may be a more elegant approach, but I believe that will work.
