How to set default application in Ubuntu

📅 2013-May-12 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ default application, ubuntu ⬩ 📚 Archive

In Ubuntu, the default application to open files of a certain type cannot be set from the Open With menu, like in Windows.

Instead, right-click on any file of the type and choose Properties > Open With. Choose the application you want to use as default and click Set as default. Done! 😊

Tried with: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
