    I am a guitar player and have downloaded some gp5 guitar tabs.

    I have also downloaded tuxguitar which can play gp5 files.

    When i try to open the files from myfiles i get cannot open file search googleplay.

    When i open the files with total commander im given a list of apps and have to select tuxguitar every time.

    How do i set tuxguitar to always always open gp5 files?

    Why is everything so difficult in android?

    Select tuxguitar and tap Always. That's the standard Android way of associating a file type with an app.

    Welcome to Android Central! Go to Settings>Apps, tap Menu, then Reset App Preferences. Now see if you can select your app.

    You may see it as more difficult, but I tend to see it as more versatile and powerful. When there are more options, it tends to get less simple.
