: The first association you assign is the default (I just tested this with *.BMP).
: In the example above, open the pgm object for HiJaak, delete the associations,
: then close it. This leaves only PMJpeg, so it's first. Now, reopen HiJaak's
: p.o. and reenter the assoc's. Check the Open menu for a graphics file; PMJpeg

: be corrected the next time you restart the WPS).
Unfortunately there is no simple way to select the default association, or to
edit the order of associations in OS/2. The stock answer is to remove and
re-add your associations in the order you wish them. Not fun.
Grab Assoed03 from Hobbes (I think that's the name). Its a association
editor. It allows full editing of all associations, both file-type and
file-extension based. It reveals broken associations, simple default
association selection, plus all the normal features of adding, deleting,
re-orind associations. Best of all, it provides a single, unified tool
for reviewing and maintaining your associations on a system-wide basis.
