Associating a default application for PHP files

ddantes asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have installed WampServer so that I can test PHP files on my local drive without needing to upload them to my server.  This is a big help.  However, I still need to move these files to my local root directory, launch a browser and navigate to the localhost file index.  I wonder if there is a way to configure a default application for the PHP file extension, so that the file is opened in the virtual server, wherever it resides on my local drive?
