I have a PC with a 3rd party program called eCopy which can be associated with .TIF/.TIFF files.  When you Open the file, it opens fine with eCopy.

However, if you right-click the TIF file, and select Print... it opens using Microsoft Image and Fax viewer or MS Photo Printing Wizard on another PC.

I know how to change the default Open program.  I've poked around in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, but cannot find how the change the program associated with the PRINT context-menu action for .TIF files.

That fixed it!  I was in the File Types area... but there was no Advanced button.  There was a Restore button instead.  I clicked Restore, and it changed to Advanced.  With that, I was able to add a new Action, called it "Print", and pasted the same .exe path as in the Open action.

Thanks!
