A new tutorial titled How to change the program a file opens with in Windows 7 was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

When you open files that have a particular file extension, Windows will look at its configuration to determine what the default program should be in order to work with these files. The default program that is assigned to a particular extension, though, may not be what you want to use. Therefore, it is possible to change the default program that is launched when you double-click on a particular file type. This tutorial will discuss how you can open a file using another program or to assign a new program to extensions that have not been opened before.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
