 How do you change how a program opens? I designated a program to be opened by one program and I needed to be opened by another one. How do I fix this? I love your newsletter, I not very computer savvy and I learn so much here.

Vicki, I will guess that you mean file and not program. You can’t really designate a program to be opened by another program.   When I say file, I’m talking about things like documents and images.

There are two ways you can change how a file opens.  You can right-click on the file and select Open With.

openwith

Then choose the program you wish to open the file with.

chooseprogram

If you want a particular type of file to always open with a certain program, Choose default programs.

choosedefault

Then select the program you want to open that type of file.

setdefault
