This operation you can do using Default programs wizard. Personally, I prefer changing default programs on particular file, without wizard. why to change? Sometimes Windows default programs are simple, with small amount of options or incompatible with some files, thus you need to change default program to reduce opening time. You will need simple double click instead of selecting program for file opening.
For this tutorial I have created .txt file. By default if you open .txt file it will be started in Notepad (Slide 1). You can see icon in slides left top corner.
Now, in order to change default program, right click on file and select Properties (Slide 2).
On Properties window, beside Open with: anotepad icon select Change (Slide 3).
Select WordPad or any other offered program or browse your PC in order to find appropriate one. Then select OK (Slide 4).
Default program is now changed. Confirm it bu selecting Apply and then OK (Slide 5).
You can change default program for any other file type, in case you have alternative program installed on your PC.
