Files don’t always open with the program you want them to. You may have a specific program for viewing pictures that you prefer over the built in solution for Windows. This is one of the many customisable settings in Windows.
- Find a file you want to open with a different program. We’re using Text document.txt on the Desktop.
- Right click the file and select Open With and then left click Choose another app.
- This will bring up a list of available programs to open that file with. Tick the Always use this app to open files box and then left click the program you want to open these types of files follow by the OK button.
The program will then open the file and will do so for all other files of that type in the future.
- You will also see that the icon has changed to match the program it opens with.
If the program you want doesn’t show up in the small list, try clicking the More Apps button to show a bigger list of available programs.
