Where are the settings for which applications handle what file types stored within IRIX? Have a issue that .tiff and .rgb files are no longer set to Image Viewer and want to force re-set it.

Thanks!

A reboot cleared this up, would still like to know where IRIX holds the associations for file types..

I am not sure about the settings for all file types, but at least the image type associations are handled, I believe, from: Desktop -> Customize -> Utilities.

The "Desktop User's Guide" (attached) may also reveal more, but I haven't sorted through it :)

Yes, I know about the control panel, but not all file types are set there.. More digging will lead me to the result..
