In 98SE I had all image files associated with Irfanview and double clicking on the file
name opened them in Irfanview. Since upgrading to XP home when I double click the file
name they open in Internet Explorer even through I went into Irfanview and associated all
image files with Irfanview plus in Foler Options, File Types the majority are still set
for Irfanview. How do I get them to open in Irfanview again??

Plus in 98SE if I highlighted file name and right clicked on it I would have the option
"Open with" if I held the Control or Shift key down.

How do I get them to open in Irfanview again?

TIA
