Hello all:
Is there a way to set a default file manager, globally? I've already checked the "Set Program Access And Defaults" section of the "Add/Remove Programs" control panel, and it does not list a file manager option. I use xplorer2 as my file manager, and I would like it to be the default, across the board. The reason why I ask this now is because I installed a program launcher which has the option to add folder shortcuts. But when I click the shortcut it opens with Windows Explorer. There is no option in the launcher to define a file manager, hence my need to set a global default.

I hope I'm making sense... LOL.
As usual, any help is very much appreciated!

Kind Regards,
Daniel in Tulsa

I appreciate the suggestion, but I've already gone that route, to no avail.
