I like WPFV for cursing through a folder of images. When I find a picture I
want to play with I want the Editor icon to open Paint Shop Pro instead of
MS Paint. I think I used to know how to set that up but cannot remember.
Anyone know how to make the change? Thanks.

Darrell,

Default editor is mspaint. To change the default editor to a third-party
program, reinstall the respective application, or directly set the registry
entry:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\shell\edit\command

In the right-pane, set the value of (default) to the full path of the editor
program which you want to use.

Examples:
REG_EXPAND_SZ
"%systemroot%\system32\mspaint.exe" "%1"

REG_SZ
c:\windows\system32\mspaint.exe" "%1"
-or-
"c:\program files\my editor\editor.exe" "%1"

If you want to make the changes for a *particular* file-type only, rather
than all "Image" types, see:
