how to open a file with photoshop

Post by ratonxnview »

Hi all,

I do a lot of editing in photoshop so while browsing in xnview, if i like to open the file with photoshop i have 2 options
1.- right click and select open with photoshop
2.- click Alt + 1
3. drag and drop

I try to find a way of open the file with photoshop more direct, like creating a comand in the toolbar.
there is a comand to open with associated program editor.

Is there a way i can configurate xnview to change the associated program editor to photoshop instaid of the default one?
Maybe I can change that association in windows xp ?

or any other ideas are wellcome

many thanks in advance for reading

thanks Xntricq for your reply,

I did search the forum before i open the a new post, but didnt find the solution i was looking for. even in this suggestions post you had made.

Never the less i found the solution. Basically the fastest way to open a file in photoshop is using the commands buttons, as you just need a single click.

The command to use will be "cmd_ShellEdit" which is open with the default editor. In the my case in windows will be paint.

The way to change that in windows is change the registry or using a single fast application which need no instalattion just run it. Here you have a link where explain both things and include the downloading link.

I didn't realize there were multiple versions. Is there a way to change the taskbar icon of the mp version?
