Part VI: Appendices > Opening Unrecognized Files

Opening Unrecognized Files

If you attempt to double-click a document that the system does not recognize, Mac OS X warns you that there is “no application available to open the document.” If you’re sure that a program on your system is capable of viewing the file, select the Choose Application option. You are prompted to choose the application that can open the file.

By default, the system tries to guess the best application for the job—but sometimes it fails. If the system doesn’t allow you to pick the appropriate application, change the selection in the Show pop-up menu to read All Applications rather than Recommended Applications.
