After you associate an image file type with Microsoft Office Picture Manager 2003, Picture Manager does not start when you double-click the file.
This behavior occurs because some third-party programs do not use the registry correctly.
To resolve this behavior, you must "de-associate" the file from any program that it was previously associated with, and then associate it with Picture Manager. To do this, follow these steps:
- Click Start, click My Computer, click the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the File Types tab.
