    Hmm, I'm not sure this is possible with just Java. I could be wrong, but I'll be surprised if what you're talking about is easy to implement.

    This is more an operating system problem than a programming problem, and as a result the solution depends upon the OS. I'd recommend researching how you can associate the file type with a given application for your OS.
