Photoshop: Cann't get it to open .JPG extension from file.
on May 6, 2015 at 12:18:47 pm

When I double click on a .JPG file it will not open by Photoshop. It wants to use viewer.exe. I went as far as trashing viewer.exe. I have tried to change the View-->Folder-->options-->File Type. and I get a message: The extension '.JPG' is already in use by file type 'ViewerFrameClass'. Choose another extension. I also cannot find in the file types ViewerFrameClass. I have Photoshop version 4.0. HELP! I have tried everything I can think of!

It sounds like you are running Windows. Right click the .jpg file and choose "Open With". You will get a list of apps on your system that can open that kind of file, but also you get the option to change the default program that will open the file.

Alternative solution:
>Open "My Computer" from your desktop. Double-click your hard drive.
>Open "Documents and Settings."
>Open the folder labeled with your user name.
>Open "Local Settings" followed by "Temp."
>Scroll down to the files beginning with "Photoshop" ("PS" for older Photoshop CS builds). This will be followed by a series of letters and numbers.
>Double-click each "Photoshop" ("PS") temp file to open them in Photoshop CS. This is the only way to identify which temp file contains the project you wish to recover. Luckily, because when Photoshop shuts properly it deletes its temp files, there should be no more than three or four.
>Select "Save As" from the "File" menu when you find the temp file you want. This will make the file permanent.
