Hi Guys

I have inadvertently, (more like stupidly) changed the app. in the file info panel that opens a particular file and all similar files. In this case it was a poi file for a sat-nav. They are all set to open with 'Terminal' now. How do I reverse this Gaff? The trouble is, they didn't seem to open with anything in particular so it's not something I can find to change it back.

Frank

Ps. I have just remembered what it said 'open with' before, it said "not applicable"

So you don't want them to open with anything?

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

It's an IMAC with Snow leopard. It's not that I don't want them to open with anything It's what was displayed in the Get Info window before I changed it.

I suppose it's because it is opened with a Garmin device.
