    In Windows there is a way to set the default program to open any file with a given extension.

    I can't find any such option in OSX. Granted that I am new to the Mac, but this eludes me.

    Thanks for any suggestions you can provide.

    • Click a representative file with the extension of interest.
    • Press [ cmd ] + [ i ] or select File > Get Info.
    • From within the resulting dialog box, select a application from the Opens with: popup menu.
    • Click Change all...
