How to change file associations

Easy way to change the default apps for archives on macOS

There a wide variety of archive file formats. To change the default apps for archive files, you have to repeat the process above several times to change file associations with each format manually.

You may use the "Default App Changer" to change file associations at once.

The changer provides a list of filename extensions for archive files. Check the checkbox in front of the extensions you want, and then click the button "Set as the default app for the selected file types" to change file associations.

Sometimes the icon of archive files may be unchanged to the one from the default app you set as, even after you use the changer. Try double-clicking the archive files to check if the files get opened with Bandizip.
