Default Use this to open is locked in

I clicked on notepad to open my config.php file and now it's taken over every one of them. When I try to change it to open with something else it only shows note pad. The file in the notepad is gibberish and I can't use it to modify the page.

GRRRRR How do you get it to let go? win7 BTW.

In Windows 7, you can right click on the file and hover over Open With in the context menu. You should see an option to choose a default program.
