Force jpg file association to JPEGView

CatOnRug solve, automate, speed up Force jpg file association to JPEGView
I found brilliant application which is simple, fast and have native version for 64-bit windows:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/jpegview/

To associate this application for 64-bit windows I extract JPEGView64 on
C:\Windows

Now I go to group policy editor and create two items:

One item is to create the main application handler

Key path:
Software\Classes\JPEGView64\shell\open\command
Type:
REG_EXPLAND_SZ
Value Data:
"C:\Windows\JPEGView64\JPEGView.exe" "%1"

Second item associates just the "jpg" file extension:

Key path:
Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.jpg\UserChoice
Type:
REG_SZ
Value Data:
JPEGView64

p.s.
I can repeat the step for eny other extension, just add new entry and replace three letters:
Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.jpg\UserChoice
