That post needs editing as it is making the page far too wide.

What happened is you chose to open a photo from your
Canon camera, with Notepad.

Why did you do that?

Also, please do not type all in capitals, it is rude.

    To me, it sounds like your system is associating Notepad with your image files.  Thus when you double click on an image file,  WinXP loads it into Notepad.
    You need to change that file association.    I assume you want to associate your image files with some image viewer program,  not Notepad.

    Sorry,  I don't have XP, so I can't step you through it.     I'm commenting only because it looks like a couple of the above responses didn't catch on that all you need is to change your file association -  and perhaps now somebody that does have XP will jump in here.

    Find an image file in Windows Elplorer.
    Right clik it and select "Open With"
    Scroll to the proper program and highloght it.
    Check the box at the bottom stating " Always use this program"

    Are you right clicking the files, or are you using the "open with" option on the Windows Explorer "file" menu?
