For example, I'd like to open srt file with TextEdit some time. To go to Application folder is cumbersome.
OK, I think I was not that clear. I want it to be opened with Jubler as usual, only some time I want to open it with TextEdit but don't want it to be default. Just be able to select it within Open With.Select one of your srt files. Ctrl-click and select Get Info. Under "Open with:" select your preferred application. Just under that click Change All... .
Hmmm ... . That, I don't know how to do.OK, I think I was not that clear. I want it to be opened with Jubler as usual, only some time I want to open it with TextEdit but don't want it to be default. Just be able to select it within Open With.
Yes, but the app won't be in the Open With menu. You have to dig through Application folder. Is there any way to put it there for next time?Right/ctrl click on the file in Finder and then select from the "Open With" list. It will just work that once and won't be the default.
I have found it easier to keep my dock icons to a minimum, so only the apps I am running are on there. I launch apps by spotlight or via launchpad then start typing the app name(Mountain Lion). There is also an app in the Mac App Store called Yoink, that I use for things like that also.Yeah, I forgot to tell him my dock is already crowded. But it's a very good idea to be honest.
Yeah, you could try to rebuild the Launch Services database in Terminal. I'd bet it won't add TextEdit to the list on those files, though. Let us know if it works.That depend on the definition of "could open". TextEdit could open SRT file no problem yet it's still not there.
I think Terminal might save the day but I'm only a Mac newbie.
