    I would like to double click on an alias on my desktop that is an Excel file and have it open the spreadsheet in NeoOffice instead of "Numbers" in iWork.

    Can this be done so that every time I click on it that is what happens? I know I can right click and hit open with, but I don't want to have to do that every time.

    Thanks!

    Right click on the file and select Get Info... In there, you can change the default app to open that file type with.

    Click the arrow in the Get Info window next to 'Open With:' In Tiger, it's the 4th arrow down.

    Now, We're talkin! I had a bogus alias and that "open with" was not visible. I then went to the original file and there it was. Now it opens with the correct program. Thanks!
