I'm trying to set Geany as the default program for opening .html files on Windows. Is it possible to do this? I've noticed that Geany doesn't show up under the list of applications that appear when choosing the default program for opening a file.

Try hold your Shift key and right click on the file, you should have 'Open with...', then probably you'll have some option to use recommended application only (untick it). If you still can't see your software in the list, try to type in your window box (depending on your system, you should click on 'Browse...' to see the Select Folder Window):

*.*

And press Enter. It'll enable all the extensions to look for.

What is the "window box", and how can I find it? –  Anderson Green Dec 27 '12 at 19:25
    
Depending on your system, once you selected 'Open with...' option, you should see something like: i.techrepublic.com.com/gallery/6338897-579-478.jpg To type '.', try click to 'Browse...' –  kenorb Dec 31 '12 at 13:17
