    Hi m8, not sure about other OS's but in Win2K you go to control panel, then Folder Options, click the "File Types" Tab and you can change it there.

    Cheers

    You can also try holding down shift and then right click on the file
    and click "open with"

    XP pro, right click on any of the same file type, properties, near the top theres an 'opens with' dialogue followed by the current program it is opened with, followed by a change button, click the change button and browse to the program you want to use to open that type of app. Click apply then its done.
