    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

    Check the value of the 'default' key at


    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.
