    Changing Explorer Default Action


    For htm files, the default windows action is Open. Click on it and it opens the file in your browser. Problem is I don't want to do this. I want to edit the htm file, but I can't seem to find anything to change the default. This doesn't seem to be an option anywhere. I could probably find the answer in the Internet if only I knew what the question was! Can anyone help here?

    :)

    How to scan Microsoft Tag?

    Carriers have the ability to change the default search action and some of them have chosen to change the Bing app. There might be a setting in Internet Explorer (Open IE>tap the ... at the bottom right of the screen>settings) to change it, but other than
    that I don't think there is a way to get back to Bing.
