it'll pick one of whatever app says it can open that mime tyope... whatever
comes first that it finds, UNLESS you happen to change that. and it's as simple
as opening that mime type via efm and using "open with" ... and selecting the
appropriate app, then it'll use whatever you last happened to use there as that
becomes your preferred opener of that type. you could beat your head against
the massive default applications dialog and manually select there mime type by
mime type... but just using efm is the simplest way...
