Whatever I do I cannot make Tif file open with the Window Image and Fax
viewer.

Is there a way to force all the types of images to use this for default?

For some reason MS paint opens the tiff file... and I cannot change that
under folder options> file types. There it looks that Window Image and Fax
viewer is selected to open them.

Help

In Control Panel, Folder Options, File Types tab, TIF item, advanced button,
Action highlight Preview, click the 'set default' button.
