GEN-7501 • Graphic program file opens in wrong program

Topic:

When I double click a file it opens in the wrong program every time.

Resolve:

Both Windows and Mac allow you setup a file association (Open With...) that always opens a file format in the same program each time.

Easy Fix:

Open the program you wish to work the file in and from its File Menu choose OPEN. Locate the file and it will open in that program.

How to adjust your operating system:

Mac users Right Click "the file" and choose "Open With..." choose default program to open that file format.

Windows users Right Click "the file" and choose a new Application as the default program to open that file format.
