I'm sorry, but I can't seem to locate the email where you explain your method. Would you mind a quick repeat?

My method using the file properties dialogue works just the same in Windows 7.

Yes. Under Control Panel, I believe the item is Default Programs. I don't have a Win7 machine to check at the moment, but there is definitely a control panel item for setting the Default Programs for specific file types.

I also believe that the "quick trick" that Sieghard mentioned also works under Windows 7, and it's much easier and faster.
