    I recently noticed a QuickTime popup whenever I accessed my computer. I would click on the "Close" button and forget about it.

    This evening I opened my Nikon Picture Project software, the location of all of my digital files and found that every digital image JPG file is labeled with "QuickTime." That is a lot of files stored in a number of folders.

    I would appreciate learning how to remove the QuickTime labels from each of these individual image files and return to my simple Picture Project software. There are several thousand individual files involved; the "raw" files escaped.....

    Thanks

    This sounds like Quicktime is now the default application for opening JPG files. If you start your "Picture Project" software and look through the menus, is there an option to modify file associations?

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    - Select Start | (All) Programs | QuickTime | QuickTime Player.
    - In QuickTimer Player, select Edit | Preferences | Player Preferences...
    - Activate the File Types tab.
    - Expand "Images - Still image files"
    - Clear the check box for .jpg and for other image types that you don't want QuickTime to handle.
    - Click OK.

    That should un-associate .jpg from QuickTime. If it doesn't automatically revert to your Nikon software, see if the Nikon software has an option to associate file types with it.

    If not:
    - Right-click a .jpg file in Windows Explorer.
    - Select Open With > Choose Program... from the popup menu.
    - Select the Nikon software from the list
    - Tick the check box "Always use this program to open this kind of file".
    - Click OK.
