    Guys, i've been using RARXpander as my main app to extract rar (i also use stuffit and unrarx). So all of my rar files were indicated by the RARXpander lcon as the default app.
    But recently all of a sudden unrarx has become the default app for rar files, so all those rar files now are indicated by the unrarx icon.

    How can I switch back to RARXpander as my default app? I've tried to check the preferences but without result. It's really annoying having to click twice to choose RARxpander first before opening each files. Thanks much for your help.

    Select a .rar file, press CMD+I, go to the Open With section and select the application you want to use and press the CHANGE ALL button.

    MRoogle says this about "change default application to open".
