So, I am trying to borrow eBooks from the library and download them into Adobe Digital Editions and then transfer them to my Kobo, but it is not so simple. I can download the acsm file, but when I double-click to open it, it tries to open in iTunes instead of Adobe Digital Editions. I can then go to my downloads folder, right-click on it and "open with.." Digital Editions. Is there a way to change this default? On my father's MacBook Air (I have a MacBook Pro), when you double click on the download it automatically opens in Digital Editions. I just want it to work this way on my computer!


Also, I am having issues transferring from Digital Editions to my Kobo - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't - and I can't figure out why. Any thoughts?

MacBook Pro, iOS 5.0.1

    Mac OS X: Double-Clicking a File Opens the Wrong Application - http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2291


    =Changing the application used to open all files of a certain kind=


    1) In a Finder window highlight a file of the kind you want to change the application to open that kind of file.


    2) While that file is highlighted, select File > Get Info or press command (apple or propeller icon) + i to get a file information window.


    3) In the lower part of the info window there is an "open with" menu with a list of applications.


    4) If your application is already in the box then it is the default application for opening that kind of file and you don't need to do anything more.  Close the get info window.


    5) If the application showing in the menu is not the one with which you wish to open the file then select a new application. If your application does not appear there then select the "other..." and track down the application (usually in the Applications folder at the main level of the computer).


    6) If you wish to change all files of this type to open with this application in future, make sure the "change all" button is selected.


    7) Close the get info window.
