Setting File Associations
When you double-click a file icon, Windows opens the program associated with that file type. If no program is associated, you are prompted to select a program. You can set and check program associations so that you don’t have to continually tell Windows which program to use to open certain types of files.
Right-click the file icon for which you want to check or change the associated program.
Click Open With.
If the program you want to use is listed, select it and skip the remaining steps. To select an unlisted program, click Choose Default Program.
Select from any of the recommended or other programs listed and then click OK.
