    • 1. Check for malware like "speed up PC", "tune up PC", "search too, bars" etc installed in the PC

      2. right click any jpg file and choose "open with" then go below and click on "choose application" then choose the application. This will set to open jpg with the application you choose.

    • The computer doesn't have anything malicious or out of place installed on it. It's a pretty bare bones machine

      As for the jpg association it's already set to open in the default picture viewer. Opening the link via explorer works as intended it's only when opening the link from inside word that it breaks

      This worked!

      I looked into your answer and saw the original key is a htmlfile association and the FFE key is windows photo viewer. I assume we are just overriding jpeg files to go directly to photo viewer or whatever is the default for it instead of bouncing through IE?

      My one question is do you know what causes this bug? Since on most PCs the 253 key works as intended. Either way, thank you for the assist.

    • No exactly sure of why this is a bug, but have seen users complaining about it for a while.
