If you're talking about the icons on Windows File Explorer, that's based on how they're identified in Windows not PSP. You can either use Default Apps from the control panel/settings on Windows. Or you can right-click an image in File Explorer, Open With -> "Choose Program". Select PSP and make sure "Always open with this program" checkbox is selected.
