There was a check box that said always use this program and you left
the box checked when you opened the file.
Depending on your OS, you may need admin rights to change it. The
procedure is to open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) by right
clicking on the My Computer icon on your desktop display. Then click
on Explore. Bring up the Folder Options display (it might be under
the Tools menu or the View menu). Click on the File Types tab. Scroll
down to the extension in question. Click Delete and then OK.
