You need to find the file in windows explorer - click on it once to select it - then hold down shift key and right click on file - you should then get the open with option with a sub option to always open files of this type with { whatever programme you have selected}

Works on win98, win 2000 for sure and winnt - expect it the same for other versions of windows
