In Windows, whenever we right-click on an image, we’re provided with the option to edit it. By default it opens with Microsoft Paint and you can then edit the image on the go. But sometimes it may happen that you want to edit the image using some other editing software such as Adobe Photoshop, and hence you have to edit the target of context menu to link it to your desired software.
While you can always use the built-in Default Programs applet or the freeware Default Programs Editor, in this article I’ll tell you how you can modify the default target using the Registry Editor. Make sure you create a system restore point first. Once you have done that, you will have to open Regedit.
1. Press Windows Key + R combination on keyboard and type Regedt32.exe in Run dialog box. Press OK.
