My file previews won't load and some of the backgrounds are black instead of white or transparent.

Basically, I use an app called "Paint.Net" to create photos. Whenever I try to open a file on there or send a file to someone on discord, the background turns black for PNG files, and it doesn't give me a preview for PDN Files. Both in files app,, and discord. Here are a few photos. Also, how do I permanently keep "Large Imagines" for previews? instead of always having to change to large from details.

You have to associate file type with default apps by file type on your machine



For example I use .png files for IrfanView software




and when view I can see




You can pick the right apps on your computer to associate file type.
