If you want ThumbsPlus to be associated with your image file types you should use the ThumbsPlus program (instead of Windows) to perform this task.

The option to associate file types with ThumbsPlus is found in the file type configuration dialog box for each image type.

There are 2 different ways to get to the file type configuration dialog box for a an image type.

Go to Options>Preferences>File types and expand the "All" entry. Scroll to the type you wish to associate with ThumbsPlus and double click it (or click "Edit"). In this file type configuration check the option to "Associate this file type with ThumbsPlus".

or

Right click a thumbnail of an image of the type you wish to associate with ThumbsPlus and go to "Configure type". In this file type configuration check the option to "Associate this file type with ThumbsPlus".

An image is attached to illustrate these methods.

Because some selected types shouldn't be associated with ThumbsPlus, the association for each format must be done individually.

There have been reports that the latest Windows 10 release is hijacking associations that have been performed using Windows. Everyone has reported that using ThumbsPlus to associate their image files has fixed this problem.
