    1) find one of the files of the file type that you want to change.

    2) control-click on it and select "get info"

    3) look for the "Open with..." section in the Get Info box that pops up.

    4) select the application you want to open the file with

    5) click the "Change All" button if you want ALL files of that same file type to be opened by the selected application
