this is going to be a quick and dirty illustration for changing your default application in you Ubuntu desktop. A lot of users don’t like the given default and install additional Application like browsers, video players or photo managers or viewers.

It is not as obvious to find the place to change the default applications. So follow along. Go ahead and click on the System Settings Icon
