you don't state what type of file you are trying to open.
.jpg? TIFF?

what file type?

It would be helpful to also tell us what program you are using to open and view pictures. Right click on the picture and mouse over "Open With". Normally you have several choices.

Don't use paint or the windows picture viewer. Download XNView.
https://www.xnview.com/en/

You can view and edit almost anything. Every picture on my websites has been resized, color corrected, etc etc with XNView.

1. Right-Click on a picture file you are trying to open

2. Select "Open With..."

3. Select "Choose Default Program"

4. A list of programs will be shown. Choose "Windows Photo Viewer" and select "Always use this program to open this type of file"

After that, all photos should open when you double-click on them.

One of my computers has file associations mixed up. I can't open .jpeg images without renaming them to .jpg images.
