Restore Archive Utility as default OS Compressor

Post by fuzznitz » Thu Jul 31, 2014 8:10 pm

Is there a way to return Archive Utility to the default OSX compressor/decompressor?

I realize you can hold option when right clicking on a zip file to set "Always Open" with Archive Utility, but the Keka icon still shows on the file after assigning it to open with Archive Utility.

Perhaps the preference "set Keka as default" should be a switch between keka and previous OS defaults?

You can set the default application for a file type in the "Get Info" panel, under the context menu. Click on the "Change All..." so it will affect all files.

If you've set another application instead of Keka and the Keka icon still showing in those files, just restart the Finder or Logout/Restart your session.

Some improvement to the preferences of the files handled by Keka is a must. You can fill a ticket asking to add the switch and remember the previous state (previous default application).
