Tools of Windows® 7 Default Program
What are the tools of Set Program Access and Computer Defaults in Windows 7?
A default program is the program that Windows uses when you open a particular type of file, like a music file, an image, or a web page. If there is more than one web browser installed on your computer, you can choose one of them as the default browser. In the default programs, you have two options, first to set a program default for particular file extensions and second are to make an extension to open with a particular program. In the first option, see all the installed programs and when we select a particular program, it shows whether the program is default for the type of extensions it is supposed to open. If you can not set the program default for all programs which it could open and also chose selected extensions to open with this program.
