Learn how to set what application a document opens with.

In this video for the Mac, I show you how to can set which application a document opens with. You can do this on a one-time basis, you can set a specific document to open in a specific app, and you can set a specific document type to use a specific app to open with. As an example, you can set all pdf’s to open in Preview or Acrobat Reader, or all jpeg’s to open in Preview or Photoshop. See how this works on the Mac in this lesson for setting what a document opens in.
