I Don't Like My Selection
If you don't like a file's default application you might be able to change it. Suppose you double-click a file that has no association, and when the Open With dialog box appears, you choose NotePad. From now on, double-clicking that file will open NotePad.

If you'd like to change the assignment, select the file by clicking its icon and then hold down the Shift key while you right-click the file. Choose Open With, from the context menu. Now make a new selection in the Open With dialog box and select the Always Use This Program to Open This Type of File check box and click OK.
