The Open with context menu allows users to choose an app or choose a default app to open a file with.

To choose a default app for a file, users would right click on the file, click/tap on Open with, click/tap on Choose another app, select an app to be default, check the Always use this app to open (file extension) files box, and click/tap on OK.
