    Hi,

    Here's how I would achieve that:

    1. right click on a file of the type you want to change the default 'open with' for

    2. click properties

    3. click the 'spanner' button

    4. select the application you want to set to default

    5. click the 'move up' button until it is first in the list


    have fun,

    Barry.

    ah thanks man. I didnt think the order mattered , i thought it would still use the same program, just list the "open with" programs in a different order. Thanks again
