Watch Question

the key for
1)printer is HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}
2)briefcase is HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{85BBD920-42A0-1069-A2E4-08002B30309D}

set the default value to what ever you want, and the restart the computer (or do the trick below)

(Trick: ctrl+alt+del end the explorer task  when the shot down windows appear press esc then wait a few seconds)

PS: if you run Win'98 you must set the default value in the regstry under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER...(like above)
if there are those two.
