file apps

When you get a new new file, and windows doesn't recognize it, you get a little window that lists all of your available apps so you can choose which one opens the file. If you're not careful, you won't uncheck the box that tells the computer to use that app ALL THE TIME. My question is, how do you correct this, or rather, how do you "uncheck" the app at a later date once you realize you need another app to do the job?
