A little while ago, I went to open a mini-dump file. When I got the list of programs to choose from and selected one, I didn't see that the checkbox by "Always use this program to open this kind of file" was checked. I know how to change the program it uses to another one, but how can I get it back to not having a program selected?

Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types tab

Find the extension and delete it.

Thank you so much shibumi. I had to add one additional step, because at first the "delete" button was grayed out. I had to first click "restore", and then I was able to delete the extension. This was because I had previously changed the program to open it with. Clicking the "restore" button changed it back to the program originally selected when that little green arrow was in that box.
