    Hi all:

    I never got this to work. For example, mp3 now is default to open in itune.

    1) I right click on a mp3
    2) select Open With
    3) Select an app (eg VLC)
    4) check "Always Open With"
    5) click on Open or double click on the VLC app icon

    -- suppose this should be remembered to open as VLC next?

    6) double click on the same file opened. Still iTune took over as default app?

    What is the right way to do it?

    1. Right-click the file
    2. Click "Get Info"
    3. Select the app under "Open with"
    4. Click Change All
