Is it possible to set the default JPG view to "Windows Picutre and Fax Viewer" via a group policy?  If not, is there another way to mass change a bunch of desktops to have that setting?

Hi brianlees,

The JPG file association fix is available here:

You should be able to merge the registry keys via a logon script.

I see the registry settings in the initial link.  It is unclear, however, which app they are changing the settings to.  Do you know?

The JPG asso fix from the 1st link? It sets the default association for .JPG files, which means Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is set as the default viewer.
