Yes. You can select a file in the Win Explorer (one left click), then hold shift when you right-click (or is it Ctrl?). You will now see "open with" added to the menu. Choose this and choose open with Photoshop. And don't forget to tick the box "always use this app to open these files".
There are other ways too, but this one in the simplest that I know.
Hope it helps.

hey Bob...

are you really sure that you WANT Photoshop to be the "default" image viewer for your system? That would be a real slow & cumbersome way of viewing images on your system. A lot of waiting involved there... [confused]

Do you not use a smaller image viewing app for that purpose? If not, try IrfanView, it's great: http://www.irfanview.com/english.htm AND it's free! :D

actually theKeeper

i use PSP for a quick viewer cause it loads up like "right now" and it has a built in browser.
but i like PS as my default for working on pics.
for just viewing ill use the PSP browser :)
