    Change File Type Association

    I am using Vista Home Premium 32 Bit.

    How do I change the file type so that it will open in the correct
    application? For some reason the little icon changed from the Photoshop (PSD)
    to the Quick Time Icon.

    Right-click on a file in Windows Explorer and select Open With. Then locate
    the application you wish to use and make sure "Always use..." is checked so
    that it remembers your decision.

    Thanks Bob,

    I was able to change the icon back to its native PSD icon in the Default
    Programs.
