    Right now, my MP3s are associated with iTunes as the default application. I would like to set that to QuickTime, i.e. when I double-click an MP3, it'll play in a QuickTime window instead of the iTunes. Could someone tell me how to go about doing this?

    1. Select an MP3
    2. Get Info (Cmd + I)
    3. Open With...
    4. Pick Quicktime from the drop down
    5. Check apply to all files of this type

    Go to File -> Get Info
    Expand the "Open with" section
    Select "QuickTime Player" from the drop-down menu
    Push the "Change All" button

    Alternatively you can use this, which allows you to control all file type preferences in System Preferences.

    That's a very nice little preference pane. And to the others, post faster. :D

    Thanks to all! I've just installed this "Default Apps" which seems to be pretty useful and easy to use.
