Question Choosing default apps to open files?

Is there a way to specify which app, say, between 2 PDF readers, can be the default app to open a file on a non-rooted NC... or to specify the app when opening a file? It seems the NC makes the most recently-installed app the default app to open files thereafter, forcing you to open the desired app first, then opening the appropriate file. Can this be changed?

I think if the pdf is on the sd card and you use QuickOffice filemanager to browse the folders, if you hold your fimger onto the pdf file for a few seconds, a menu will pop up and give you a list of which pdf viewers you have available and you chose one. You may then be able to also say to use this as the default.

If you use the regular file viewer, i don't know any way to chose or change the default, but try the same holding your finger method with that too. I forget how it behaves then.

This doesn't happen on my NC: The popup list doesn't include choices of apps to open the file.
