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?

hi mr brettman
u can easily right click on the file of this type with the "shift" button pressed, then chooose the open with option.
the open with window will appear, choose the program u wana use for this type of files if it exists or simply
choose other to specify another location
after that check the box saying "always choose this program...."
then ok.
