I'm a bit perfectionist and the QGIS have a annoying little problem: it changes all of my .jpeg and .jpg icons to QGIS file icons. I would like to change that, but I have no idea.

I use Linux Minx XFCE.

    I guess this is an OS-specific issue. A software you install tends to set certain extensions to open by itself. So, OS changes the icon of extension to the software's icon. But it is weird that QGIS changes all of .jpeg icons to QGIS file icons, though. Jan 13, 2022 at 13:25
  • Was .jpg file extension associated to another app before QGIS? Jan 13, 2022 at 13:27

  1. Right-click on any file with the desired file type or extension, choose “Properties” from the context menu.

  2. The “Properties” dialog appears. Click on the “Open With” tab.

  3. Select the desired application for the given file type. All files with the same extension will now be opened with this program by default and file icons will be changed.

Set the default program for a given file type / extension (Here a pdf document in Nemo on Linux Mint)

On Linux Mint, replace step one and two choosing “Open With” → “Other Application…” in the contextual menu, as seen in the picture above.
