    I just purchased a Canon printer and I was going through the manual through the canon application (not the book manual) and it seems like somehow the manual is tied into my final cut express app. Shouldn't my canon manual have some sort of canon icon. The icon that is showing is a lego block with the final cut express picture. How can i get the correct icon on there? When I click on quick look it says "Final Cut Express Plugin File." Should the final cut express icon be showing up for this?

    Hope this makes sense.

    Thanks!!

    The manual has a .help extension after the filename. When I open it it opens with helpviewer as the default program.

    Ok, try moving com.apple.helpviewer.plist onto your Desktop.
    You'll find it in Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences.
    Then try your help file again and see if there's any difference.

    Do a get info on the file (command + I) and under Open with: change it to Helpviewer. That should change the icon and associate it with Helpviewer.

    Open with is already associated with help viewer and shows helpviewer as default. I uninstalled final cut express to see what would happen with the icon and now I have the Lego block with the Microsoft PowerPoint icon
