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.
