Mac OSX – Make Specific App Default File Opener

I have been meaning for a long time to set some configuration parameters for specific file types including which applications open them by default. I deal with a lot of different file types and I am typically having to scroll through a long list of Mac applications to select the one that I want to open the file.

Below I describe installing Default Apps and how it works.
