Change the Default App a File Opens with on a Mac

After lot of experimenting found an easier way to change an individual files default application by doing the following from the Mac Finder:
  • From the Finder, select the file that you want to adjust
  • Hit Command+i to “Get Info” on the file
  • Click to expand the “Open with” section within that files info screen
  • From the pull down menu, select the application you want to open this specific file with
  • Close the Get Info window
This will only change the default behavior of that specific file. If you click the “
Change All” button you will change that file types association across Mac OS X, causing all instances of that file to open in the application you chose.
