  • Right click the shortcut.
  • Select Open with…
  • Select the program you want to open the file.

    Windows will give you some suggestions or you can browse to the program if it is not on the list.

  • Tick the box to the left of Always use the selected program to open this type of file.
  • Click the Ok button at the bottom of the screen and you are done!

    Each file type is opened by a certain program (or programs if you have multiple programs that can open the same file type).

    You can Google “restore file associations” to find some ideas how to repair your file associations.

    ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR SYSTEM BEFORE TINKERING!

How can I change it back. Would really appreciate some help. It wastes time right clicking to get open.
    thanks
