    Question Changing default applications

    Hi,

    Got my shiny new T201 (ICS) today and I've already mucked it up. I accidentally set my Word/Excel files (in Dropbox) to open in PrinterShare instead of my office app, and now I cannot figure out how to change it. The popup says it can be done from Home/Settings/Applications/Manage Applications but that last part doesn't seem to exist. It does on my smartphone though, so I'm guessing there's something slightly different about how apps are managed in ICS. Can anyone point me in the right direction, please?

    Thanks,
    Kim

    Hi Elyss,

    Welcome to the forum

    You can alter the defaults of any app by doing the following:

    Settings/Apps/All/ - select the app you want to remove from being the default, in your case, PrinterShare.
    In the new screen for that app, scroll down the page a little and you'll see a button labelled "Clear defaults". Tap this and it will reset the default to how it was originally.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you! I'd got almost all the way there but, for some reason, the screen didn't scroll down and I thought what I could see was all there was! Your reply increased my persistence

    Thanks again,
    Kim

    I have uninstalled the default video playing app, MXPlayer. Had subsequent problems with audio so I reinstalled it. The clear Defaults for that app as well as ESFileExplorer are greyed out. Is there another way to change the default video app to MXPlayerPro?
    Thanks!
