If you want to choose which file types and protocols a program uses by default, tap or click choose defaults for this program. Note, if a program doesn't show up in the list, you can make the program a default by associating a file type or protocol with it.

Use this option to fine-tune default programs based on the file type or protocol. For example, you can have all jpg image files open, using one program and bmp image files open, using a different program.
