View Full Version : Mac file association

01-05-2002, 10:34 AM
When I click on an html file on my PowerMac it starts up Word98 instead of Internet Explorer 5.

Where do I change the settings to make it use Explorer 5 for html files?

It is a while since I used a Mac and I am getting rusty. However, from memory there is a control panel that you use to change file associations.

I think it is called File Exchange, or PC Exchange or something like that...

Oh dear, I have used it a thousand times, but having been forced by clients to change over to these benighted PeeCee boxes some years ago, I have forgotten... Just look through your Control Panels, and I am sure you will find it.

Like everything else on a Mac you will find it easy and intuitive to use, unlike...

Hope that helps
