Photostage Free intruded in download of JPG files

Recommended Posts

I was downloading some jpg files from Google Drive online to a folder on my Windows 10 laptop when the Photostage Free icon suddenly appeared in my folder and I could only download the files into Photostage Free, as if I wanted to make a slide show.

I could not get out of this, so I uninstalled Photostage Free until I can learn how to prevent this from happening. Usually, Photostage Free is not in my Start menu and it sits dormant with its Desktop Shortcut until I double-click on the shortcut item.

Why has Photostage Free suddenly gone "busy-body" and intrusive, please?

Hi, it's possible that it's set as your default program for the files in question (jpg, images in general).

What you need to do is set that to something else instead:
Right click on one of the files, select Open With> Choose the program as needed (Windows Image viewer), check the box to use as default and that should take care of it.

MakubX - Thank you, I have not yet reinstalled PhotoStage Free, but I am pretty sure that you have given me the right answer. I have had things like that before.

Many thanks!

You are welcome!
