LR3 seems to be set as my "default" photo editor. Don't want that!

Mar 4, 2012 4:29 PM

Can anyone tell me where I can change what my default photo editor to what I want. Each time I plug anything that MIGHT have a photo on it activates LR3 causing me to wait until it fully launches and then I have to cancel the import process and then go to file and exit.

My LR3 window is a little two large for the screen and I can't see the red X or the min. button or any other options. I also can't see/find the tools that should show up on the left side of the window. The screen resolution is set an the recommended for my computer and all other programs, but I guess I haven't tried to change it to resolve this issue.


If anyone can give me a suggestion to resolve the software opening without being commanded to, and how to see the tools, etc please let me know.

    There are little triangles in the middle ot the top, bottom, left, right of the screen; if you click on them they will toggle on/off the displays. Hope this is what you are looking for.
