    >but want to set this up to use.

    You would have to reinstall all of the programs that you want to use.

    Are you going to stick with MSTS or are you updating to OpenRails?

    This method is for when no app has already been assigned by Windows

    Open File explorer
    First make sure you have File Extensions displaying
    (View Tab check box on right label says "File name extensions")
    Go to where you have MSTS/ORTS content installed
    Probably start working in the Global folder
    Locate file types such as S, SD, ACE
    select one
    right click
    Open with (Not Open - "Open with")
    Choose radio button "Search through Windows"
    Click Search button
    next window click on "More apps"
    Choose from list
    Click on OK
