In Finder Select said file you want to change the default launch program for. After said file is highlighted on the keyboard tap (Command) + i. It will open a Info window. On that window there is a (Open with:) section. Select the Application you would like to change the default to and it will be set for that selected file. If you want to change all of that file type hit (Change All...). Then you can close the info window and launch your file like normal.
Hope this helps with your issue.
I have a similar problem, but seems to only affect one file type. I am unable to set a default image program for Canon .CR2 image files.
The normal procedure:
1. Select file > Get Info
2. "Open With" > select app
3. "Always open With"
I used this to set all .jpg image files to open with Preview, but when I do the exact same thing with
.CRW image files it only sets that one file. Does not set Preview as default all like files.
I sure would appreciate any info.
