This isn't a photo explorer problem, it's a windows / user problem, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt here and request you fill in your profile if you wish to ask more questions as this will be very helpful in answering future questions.
Right click a photo, choose open with, select photo explorer and tick the always use this option box and away you go.
