i know. for mine when i "open" those downloaded files, either Photoshop or Microsoft word comes up.
Usually displaying nothing. i don't know how to open those things properly. Plus and programs i download, i don't know how to activate them.... for window xp, it automatically start...
i'm just so dumbfounded...
File-application associations are handled by LaunchServices. You can reset the LaunchServices database using a utility such as Onyx. After you do that, you will be asked to identify an application the first time you open a new file type.
You can also manually manage file associations in Mac OS using a preference pane called RCDefaultApp:
Hope this helps...
diskimagemounter.exe and diskimagemounter.ink are both set as windows explorer files
First, these are windows files. A windows executable (program) and a windows shortcut (link). They should be set to open in windows and cannot be opened on Mac OS.'
Second, you can easily change file type associations. Just select the file in Finder, click on File >Get Info..., and then where it says 'Open With:', select the appropriate application and then click the 'Change All' button to set the default program.
