Windows 8

How to tell Windows 8 to open file the way you want

Change File Associations

By default, Windows 8 associates image, video, music, and PDF files with the included full-screen Modern apps. Double-click a file on the desktop and you’ll be immediately whisked away to the Modern environment where the programs you have open are hidden and you don’t have a visible taskbar.

Even if you like the new Modern interface, this is extremely clunky when you’re using the desktop. Microsoft won’t give us separate file associations for the desktop, so you’ll have to change your system’s file associations to desktop programs.
