    Can't set default application of my choice


    I have installed Image Glass (It is working) and I want to set Image Glass as my default image viewer. In Control Panel under Default Apps I do not get an option other than the options listed and the App Store. There is no option for choosing another app that is on the computer. What am I missing?

    You want to set file associations. So click "Associate a file type or protocol with a specific program" and click on the "Current Default" column heading to sort by program name. Scroll down to where your current image viewer is listed and then associate file types one at a time with your new program.

    Having said that most image viewers have the option to associate file types somewhere within the options.

    Examples:
