Change Default Program For Web Pages In Windows 7?
By Dave Taylor
I'm a big fan of Google Chrome as a Web browser, but every time I double-click on an HTM or HTML document, it opens up in Microsoft Internet Explorer. Eewww.. How do I fix it and change the default program for this type of file or content, Dave?

Dave's Answer:

You're touching the tip of a big iceberg, actually. Regardless of operating system, somewhere there's a table of file types and what applications can handle or display thoat content.
