|annie1378, IE opens most things, but not all. When in doubt, find 'What opens what' @: http://filext.com/.|
RIGHTCLICK the proggie in question and when the menu pops up, 'Open with' and enter your choice. If you'd like to use that all the time, check the 'always use' box. BTW, my guess is that yours now opens the way it does is 'cuz that box is checked and an inappropriate choice made.
You'll probably find that you need to use several things. One for text files, another for graphics, etc. I do.
