File associations are what allows Windows to know which programs should be used to open each file type. But what if you'd like to change those associations?
Here's where Default Programs Editor comes in handy. It's a standalone tool – no installation required – that enables you to review, check, change or delete file associations in Windows. Plus it includes tools to change the icon assigned to each file type, as well as changing the description of each file.
Default Programs Editor has a simple interface with three big buttons corresponding to the program's three main options. Click the appropriate button and follow the steps. Oh, bear in mind that you may need administrator rights in order to tweak these settings.
Everything in Default Programs Editor is pretty straightforward, which is a good thing since the program doesn't have documentation of any kind.
With Default Programs Editor you can easily configure the way Windows manages file associations, and change them any way you like.
