    Default Change default application by file type

    I have a new laptop - mostly doing exactly what I want it to. But I find I have a problem:

    I do some photography and use Photoshop CC2019. When I go into:

    1. Choose default application by file type
    2. .jpg
    JPG file
    3. The default is Photos

    And I wish to change the default to Photoshop CC2019.

    I have managed this on my desktop (where it is most essential) but would also like this on my lappy too!

    I can't for the life of me see how to do this! Pretty please? What is the answer to this 'Oh thou most knowledgeable people' ?

    TIA

    It is not available to select. And I can't see a way of making it available.

    There are other options, but not the one I want...

    What you can try, right click any .jpg - Open With - Select the Photoshop, if its not listed, scroll down the list to the bottom, then click " choose another App" , if still not there Scroll down - More apps, if still not there - Select Look for another app on this PC- Scroll to the program (x86) or Program files ( where ever it was installed) folder, locate Photoshop, select the Photoshop .exe file. Once selected put a tick in the box " always use this app to open .jpg" ( you may need to start and scroll through again to select the box)

    Thanks - but when I go I get Photos, and other things I don't want. 'Other options' which doesn't include Photoshop. It just suggests 'Look for an app in the Microsoft Store', which of course doesn't include the Photoshop I'm looking for.. The suggestion you make 'Look for another app on this PC' is not there.

    It should be, haven't seen a Windows 10 PC yet that doesn't have the option. I suspect you're not looking in the right place ( scroll further down)

    And here's a quick Video showing with photo shop, it will be under Adobe ( or should be)
