File association help

By gruple ·
I have files that are exported from our accounting program. When I first went to look at these files they were not associated with any program. When I told windows to look for a file to open it with, I accidentally (stupid I know) checked the box to always use that program to open it with. I need to see the files the way they were originally, not just try to associate them with a new program. I have tried re-exporting to new locations and of course this doesn't work. Does anyone know how to turn this file association off?

look for the extension of these files. Then in your explorer, go to tools/folder options. Select the File Types tab. Here you can change it to what you need. You can pick another program (the right one) to associate with the extension, or delete it all together so it'll ask you what program to use.
