open and open with

i was looking at email attachments in kmail by right clicking on them and selecting "open". then i needed to use gimp, so i used "open with...". now whenever i choose plain "open", it opens with gimp. how do i change the default behavior of open back to kwickshow?

Right click and select 'open with', then type or select kwickshow. Before clicking ok make sure that the box that says: "Remember applications associations for files of this type" is selected and then kwickshow will be the default target for opening said files.
