When right clicking on a file in Windows - a PNG in this example - I know you can change the default app it opens with, but files such as PNG's also have an Edit option.

Is it possible to change the default editing app? If I choose Edit from the context menu it opens in Paint by default but I would like to edit the file in Fireworks.


Set your Default Program to open... Easy.

Add an "Edit" option... Hard.

You have to manually add in a custom context menu for PNG to edit in Fireworks by editing The registry key:

Or if you want a program to do it see: Add, Remove, Edit Context Menu items in Windows 7 / 8
