I want to change the application with which a file extension is associated.  In this case, the file extension is .jsp

I go to:  View | Options | File Types
and I see that .jsp is not in the list of extensions
However, I know it is associated with an application because double-clicking on a .jsp file launches that application - macromedia
dreamweaver.  "jsp" in not in the extensions.txt file used for configuring dreamweaver

So I attempt to create a new association and I get the message:
    The extension jsp is already in use by filetype "jsp_auto_file"
I don't see a listing for jsp_auto_file in the File Types

I want to associate .jsp with my browser so that double clicking on it displays the jsp page in the browser.

Select a .jsp file in explorer then right click on it while holding the shift key. Click on the open with... menu item. Select your browser from the list and make sure that the check box at the bottom for always open this type of file with this program is selected.
