When I double-click on an .XPS file, nothing happens, or it gets saved by my browser! Why won't xpsviewer.exe show it to me?

When Microsoft Internet Explorer is not the default browser, xpsviewer.exe won't show .xps documents.

You can open the .xps file in Internet Explorer, and view it.

Of course, you can also re-set Internet Explorer as the default browser, but I would never do that.
