Windows picture and fax viewer


It has no .exe, it's just a .dll


It is executed by rundll32.exe. In case you are looking for that, the default shell open command of picture files in the registry would look like:

rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\shimgvw.dll ImageView_Fullscreen %1


Geez, no wonder I couldn't find it. :confused:

I wanted to link it to my scanner program. I guess I can try to dig up Infraview again. Thanks.

Good grief Charlie Brown
Is this what you want?

Turn off the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as the Default Image Viewer

You can also change the file associations for the specific file types you want.
1. Open the Windows Explorer
2. Go to Tools / Folder Options / File Types
3. Scroll down to the extension you want to change
4. Click on the Change button
5. Select the program you want to associate with that extension
6. Click on the OK button
If the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is set as the default for many of your graphic file types,
you can remove it so other graphics programs can be used.
1. Run Regedit
2. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT / SystemFileAssociations / image / ShellEx / ContextMenuHandlers
3. Delete the key ShellImagePreview

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
