    How to change default app?

    I purchased a video player app that has more options than the stock video player. Every time I tried to play a video I got a pop-up asking which of 3 apps I wanted to use (the stock app, the purchased app, and one other that I can't remember). To eliminate that pop-up I finally check-marked the box in the pop-up to make the purchased app the default. Now it automatically always plays videos with that app.

    That was good until now, but I want to temporarily use a different app. Is there a way to change the default, or undo making that purchased app the default so I get the pop-up again that asks which app to use?

    I can't find anything in the DX's options or in the purchased app's menus to do this.

    go into settings and click clear defaults for the app that you told to use every time.
    edit: looks like someone beat me

    On my phone all you have to do is shut it down and restart it. It will not remember the default apps the next time it is started up, but I think this is just a bug in my phone (It's very annoying).

    Thank you. I looked all over for such a setting. The path you provided led me directly to it.
