Solved Changing file type / application associations Tags: Configuration Default Photoshop File Type Mac OS X Last response: May 12, 2011 2:39 PM in Mac Os X Share sadena May 12, 2011 1:21:14 PM How do you change the default application to open a certain file type? I just installed Photoshop, which is lovely, but I don't want that launching every time I want to take a peek at a jpg, I want to use Preview. I know I can always use Open With but I want to change the default. This is easy enough in Windows.

The problem is solved though, just using the open with seems to have reset the association and they are opening with Preview again. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
