    This is probably operator error but I just upgraded to Marshmellow and find that if I go to open a file, let's say .mp3 file, in Lollipop it would give me a choice of let's say 3 different apps to open it with. I would usually select the app tap "once" and all was well. How do I get that sequence back under Marshmellow?

    What are you seeing now? Does it automatically open with an app, or do you only get to choose the app, which then automatically becomes the default?

    I seem to recall that some phones do it that second way (which means you have to go to the Settings>Apps menu to clear the default each time, if you don't want it to be the default). It doesn't happen on my Nexus 6P, so that's not how it's supposed to work on relatively stock Android.

    I selected the app the first time and then it became the default. I used to use an app called "better-open"which worked quite well. Maybe that is the app I'll have to use.!!

    Any ideas would help.

    There seem to be a number of apps like Better Open With, so the only thing I can suggest right now is to see how well they work for you.
