There's another way (at least, in Win 95):
* Select a file with the extension you want to associate (e.g. .html). 
* Right-click on it while holding down the SHIFT key.  
* Select "Open With".  
* Select Netscape or iexplore (or whatever browser you use)
* Click the box that says "Always use this program..." 
* Press OK.

No settings to remember and if the program you want is not available in the
list, you can BROWSE for it by clicking on the "Other" button..
