XP: Windows Stopped Using Windows Picture and Fax Viewer To Preview Pictures

You are finally addicted to XP’s built-in picture preview, and now it is gone away. Here is how to redo it.


By default, XP uses Windows Picture and Fax Viewer to preview pictures. Getting accustomed to this takes some time; however, once you are, it is hard to go back.

Several programs, when installed, try to take over the role of picture preview. This is very difficult to reverse. Here is how you do it.

    1. Click Start.
    2. Click Run.
    3. In the textbox type the following: regsvr32 shimgvw.dll
    4. Click OK

You may or may not have to reboot to see your changes.
