While configuring the context menu "Open With" for a zip file, I input
a wrong application for opening the zip file by default.

Instead of clicking on "winzip64.exe" I clicked on "wzwipe32.exe".

Now, how do I get rid of the wrong input?

Please help if you know how. Thank you.

In general:
SHIFT-right-click on a item of that type, select "Open With"*
"Choose default program".


Didn't I say this yesterday? g


You may have done, but I didn't see it.



OK, no big deal. I've sometimes done the same thing myself.



Did you also suggest just
running Winzip to let it repair the associations?



Nope.


Except I didn't say SHIFT right-click. That's because holding down the
Shift key, which was necessary in older versions of Windows, is not
necessary in Windows 7.


By Jove, you're right! So many useful things in Win 7 require Shift-
right-click that I've got out of the habit of doing a plain right-
click.




Understood.

In this particular case:
Run Winzip, choose Options* Configuration* System.
(My Winzip may be older than yours, so the menu may not be exactly
the same, but I'll bet dollars to donuts there's still an option to
let you reassociate Winzip with archives.


Thank you. Problem is now solved. I'd like to thank the others who
have also contributed to this thread.
