How to create an association in the set associations control panel


To set association means to set a default program to open a specific file.

I'll use powerpoint files as example... .pps, ppsx, ppt or pptx

Start > Default programs > Aoosociate a file type or protocol with a program > under Name at the top left, scroll down till you see pps > click it > look across > under Current Default, it should sat Microsoft Office PowerPoint or Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer....
if it does not say so, click Change Program... > find Microsoft office PowerPoint or Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer, click it > click OK.

Now, the file associate is set for powerpoint files.

That mthod applies to all other files. You just have to know which program is meant to open which type of files.
