Is there any way to have the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" option unchecked by default?

I found this method to have the option disabled. I haven't tried it yet, but that's not what I'm looking for; I'm hoping to have that option enabled but unchecked by default.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • For what reason? What are you trying to do that requires you to open files with a program other than the default frequently?

  • @Karan: Say for playing a large .mp4.crdownload while it is being downloaded. Commented Apr 27, 2015 at 18:05
  • So can't you drag and drop onto a media player? Or add the player to the Send To menu?

  • @Karan: I can. That's not the point. I'd like this option better. Commented Apr 27, 2015 at 18:22
  • Why not add your player to the context menu or even the Open with menu for .crdownload files then? That way you won't have to browse for the program every time.
