Now that I know how to do this, it seems so easy and straight-forward. To change the default application files of a specific type are opened with, do the following:

  1. Right-click a file that you wish to change the default application for and select Properties.
  2. Click the “Open With” tab.
  3. Select the desired application’s radio button.
    • Additional applications can be added if the one you want is not listed. Use the Add button to find the desired application.
    • You can also remove applications from the list by highlighting the application and clicking the Remove button.
    • Adding applications to or removing applications from this list changes which applications are available in the “Open With” option when you right-click a file.
  4. Click the Close button.

Again, it seems so easy and straight-forward now. Go figure. 🙂
