    How do I change paint.exe from opening each time I click EDIT from the

    Right click > Open With > Choose Default Program. See the application you
    want to use, and click OK. "Always use the selected program to open this
    kind of file" should already be preselected. If you don't see the
    application you want to use, click Browse to find the appropriate program.

    I have done that.

    I have it set to open jpg and gif files with Windows Gallery.

    It does that OK but when I click EDIT it opens paint.exe and I want to use
    fireworks.

    "c:\program files\macromedia\fireworks 8\fireworks.exe" "%1"

    %1 gets replaced with the file you click.

    Re: Right-Click EDIT menu. How to change it?

    It is fireworks.bmp

    Basically, all I want to do is edit jpg, png and gif in fireworks. At the
    moment they edit in Paint by default if i right click and select EDIT.

    When i just click on them i want then to open in windows gallery which they
    do now.
