    On a Vista machine Is there a way to reset the action of double-clicking on
    a .jpg to mimic the behavior of right-clicking the file and selecting
    preview?

    Check the value of the 'default' key at

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell

    It should show '(value not set)'., in the right pane. If not then modify the
    default key in the right pane to remove whatever's there.

    If that sounds a bit too tricky then post back and I'll attach a .reg file
    that does the same.

    That was set correct but a branch lower in the registry key I noted that the
    command to open was pointing to the WPG in \program files\ that doesn't work
    very well instead of the WGP in \program files (x86)\ that does so I made
    that tweak.

    Now photos on C:\* open lightning-fast but photos on a network share are
    still slower than molasses to open.
