    Hello Ralph,

    Just to verify, are you:

    1) Clicking on Open with > "Choose another app"

    2) Selecting the app you want to be set as default for .jpeg file

    3) Checking "Always use this app to open .jpeg files"

    Ralph,

    If you haven't already, see if setting Windows Photo Viewer as your default app for Photo viewer in Settings may help it stick.

    Hi, you can examine whether the change has been written to your registry using this free program:
    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	1.jpg 
Views:	7 
Size:	107.0 KB 
ID:	193628
    Please use this and confirm you can see the change after you have made it.

    Have you tried double clicking a jpg after you've changed the association- what happens?

    You said
    after a while or restart
    you find it resets.

    Please try a clean boot and retry.
