Windows XP Photo Printing Wizard

Posted on 2004-10-22

Is there a way of disabling this? We view scanned tiff images (mainly scans of letters etc) in the default windows viewer and print from there. In previous versions of windows this worked fine but in XP Pro when we try to print this damn wizard comes up!!!  It takes about 5 mins to appear and there doesn't appear to be a way around it.

Any way of diabling the bl**dy thing?

    If you go into Windows Explorer where the File Types list is and see what application is Associated with TIFF.  If it is this wizard program, delete the association, then doubleclick on any TIFF file in Win Explorer and then associate it (and all other TIFF files) with your preferred image viewing program/utility.  It sounds like you have some big files there.  JPG files will I am sure open up quicker, cos they are a lot smaller.
