Does anyone know how to write a simple BAT file that will change the default program? For example, when I click on this bat file, it will change the default program from one program to another or just assign a program to the file type.


Thank you

windows already does this.


just right click on the file and select "open with" and select "choose default program..", then when the box open you pick the program to open the file with, if it's not listed on the windows you can direct manually pick the program.  then make sure you check/uncheck the box that says "always use this selected file to open this kind of program".


no need to re-create something that's already built in.
