Program extentions

We have Windows 7 on one of our office computers. However, I cannot figure out how to get the computer to automatically choose the appropriate program to open files. Every time we get a file in with a new extention, we have to browse and look for the program.....please help!

Hi Beth and Welcome to SevenForums.

Are your office computers networked?

Do you have a System Administrator or equivalent thereof at your company?

Would you give us an example or two of programs that have unrecognized extensions?
