    Default Program Associations
    Hi guys, where do I change the default program for certain file types? Example - I want Xee to open my pics instead of Preview.

    Thanks in advance!

    Never mind I found it!! For those that are looking to do the same thing... Right click the file and click Get Info. When in that dialog box expand "Open With" then choose the program you desire and click "Change All" and that will change the default program for all of those file types.

    np, happens all the time. and if you were genuinely stuck and couldn't figure it out, there would have been a flurry of helpful advice.
