Anyone know how to get Safari on my Mac to use Vuze as default Torrent app ? and for Magnet links ?

It keeps opening Limewire.

Saoir,

Mac OS X makes it easy to change file associations, which determine what programs are used to open various file types.

To change what program opens a file type, you first need to open a file's information window. This can be done by selecting the file and clicking "Get Info" from the File menu. Or you can simply right-click (Control-click for single button mouse users) on the file and select "Get Info" from the contextual menu that pops up.

Notice the section in the middle of the window that says "Open with." When you click the drop-down menu, it will show you a list of applications that can open the selected file type. Select the program that you would like to open the file and close the information window. When you double-click the file, it will open using the program you selected. When you first see the drop-down menu, it is probably going to have Limewire there.

You can also change what program opens all files of a certain type. To do this, first select the program you want to use in the drop-down menu, then, before closing the window, click the Change All... button.

You should be prompted to confirm the change with an alert window.

Thanks for the reply Sukey ...

I understand and appreciate your instructions .. but where do I get a file from Magnet, for example, and what kind of file extension will it have ?

The only torrents I have downloaded so far are .torrent files that auto open Vuze.

What other type of file do you want Vuze to open? You say yourself that .torrent files automatically open Vuze. That's the only kind of file Vuze works with, and it seems it is set up as the default app already. Any file you get from any torrent site will be of this type. When you download a torrent file via Safari, you will still have to double-click on it. Safari won't pass it directly to Vuze. You can do that in Safari's download window, though. <option+command+l> (that's an L)
