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!

On the JPG file, hold down the shift key and right-click to bring up the contextual menu; there should be a choice for 'Open with...,' then select Photoshop, and you will reassociate the JPG file extension with PS.

If you just need to edit the file in photoshop, you can try this:
launch photoshop and open the file while using the File:Open menu command (ctrl+o).

Now, do you know how to get a picture preview when you have the folder open and you have selected the file?
