Your screenshot is not for the search index. It's for "Default Programs" instead, and is not related to this tutorial.

For what you want, you could right click on a .sch file, and use "Open with" to set it to always have Schematics as it's default program instead.

Open With - Change Default Program

Hope this helps.
