    Can't open pictures in MSpaint

    I've been messing around with the registry (lol,don't groan) and when i right click a picture then choose 'edit' from the context menu it opens paint but not the picture in paint. Does anyone have an idea what i may have done wrong.

    What happens when you right click on the pic to select "open with" and then "Choose another app"

    Have you tried to change the default

    'Open with' MSpaint or another program works fine but when i click 'edit' (which used to open the picture in MSpaint) it now opens MSpaint but with no picture. It just opens the paint program.
