How to set newer release to default in Windows 7?

6 views (last 30 days)
I have tried a few other forums on here but nothing is what I need.
I downloaded a new release but the old release remains the default.
I know this is a windows issue but the problem is when I try to change the default to the new versions .exe is does not allow it. I believe there is a very specific .exe I have to choose (there are a few matlab.exe files in various folders of the 2018a directory.
Any help is appreciated.

Sorry I thought you meant into the command window, my apologies. Yes, drag and drop any of the exe's will work. Unfortunately that doesn't help.
