PSP 7 double clicking image in Win Explorer won't open it.

PSP 7 double clicking image in Win Explorer won't open it.

PSP 7 double clicking image in Win Explorer won't open it.

I have used Paint Shop Pro 7 for a long time and I love it.
At work If I double click an image in Windows Explorer it opens Paint Shop Pro but only shows a browser window it does not open the image I just clicked on, nor is the browser in the folder of the image. It's always in the default folder c:\program files\jasc software inc\paint shop pro 7\images.
Is there something turned off? The only way I can open an image is to open PSP, browse to the folder then find the image. This is very annoying since we have tons of photos that need modified. I looked in the folder settings of Windows Explorer and it has this.
which I assume is correct.

RE: PSP 7 double clicking image in Win Explorer won't open it.

Have you looked at the settings for the file type you are trying to open??

You might need to associate that particular file type to PSP.

From within PSP, go to File->Preferences->File Format Associations and check the file types you wish to open with PSP.

If they are checked, un-check them, and re check them, clicking o.k in between.

If after this it still wont open inside PSP you will most likely have to change the associations manually from Windows File type manager but we will get to that if needs be.

Ignorance is not necessarily Bliss, case in point:
Unknown has caused an Unknown Error on Unknown and must be shutdown to prevent damage to Unknown.

Yes I did but...
I just bought a newer version so I don't have that problem anymore.
thanks though
