I exported a feature out to a shapefile and I was trying to open a .dbf file in Excel to calculate a value and somehow when I right clicked on the .dbf in Windows Explorer and went to 'Open With' it changed the application used to open a .dbf file to Adobe Acrobat. Can anybody tell me where I can go to change the Open with option to 'dbase' 

Thanks

Thanks for the reply Joe!

What is mentioned in that article is exactly what I did but somehow the .shp portion of the shapefile export changed the Open With to ArcGIS Pro and I want it back to what it originally was.

See my insert
