    Default Applications
    Is there a place where I can change the default application used to open files? On some programs, I can't find where to change it to the default program. For example, where can I change the dafualt program that opens images from Preview to another?

    Right click on an image file and choose "Get Info", choose the Open With area, pick the app you want to open with and click "change all...".

    That should do it.

    Right/Control click the file you want to open, then click Get Info, click Open With, choose the application you want to open the file with and then hit Change All.
