There is a Windows Registry entry that points to FileMaker.
Otherwise have you tried right-click, open with, and select the version of FileMaker that you want and tick always use?
There are more suggestions here: Filemaker 16 and Windows 7 File Associations
I've found the easiest thing to do is simply reinstall the version you want to be the default. For most regular users, there is no need to keep the old version of FM on their machine. Uninstall it first, then install the new version.
Agreed. Those of us needing legacy versions (for clients' version matching) should have learned to drop a file on the correct version. Or launch FMP/A first and then navigate to file (local or remote).

On Mac you can hold cmd + shift while dragging a shortcut icon from the Dock, and dropping it on the desired FM icon version ( also on the dock ). It's a nice shortcut to have.
Not sure there is an equivalent on Windows. But yes. I usually have FMPA 15 and 16 start automatically on my Windows machine. Then I can just drop the file shortcut in from there, or use the open/open remote shortcuts.
Thanks. I will try some of the suggestions :-) .
