setting default program to edit images on windows fax and scan

Hi,
one of our users used to edit images in windows fax and scan using paint but for some reason just a month ago it no longer defaults to paint as the program used to edit an image on the scanner.  Im not sure what photo or image editor it is now defaulting to but is there a way to change it back to paint?  thanks

If you find a file in explorer that is of the appropriate file type and right click on it, you get a menu, select open with and fly out the second menu. In there there is an option to choose the default program.

This will open up a window allowing you to choose the default program that files of that extension are opened with. Select Paint and ensure that "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" is checked.

Then all files of that type will be opened with Paint.
