I want to change .mat and .m files to open the most recent version of MATLAB on my Windows computer.
When I go to the Set Associations window through Control Panel, select .mat, click "Change Program..." another window "Open with" opens showing only Matlab R2017a and Microsoft Access as "Recommended Programs". No Matlab programs are in the "Other Programs" list. Since I want to associate with R2017b, I click "Browse" and then select C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2017b\bin\matlab.exe and click "Open" on the bottom of this window.
When I go back to the Set Associations window, it still shows Matlab R2017a.
This happens also when I select C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2017b\bin\win64\MATLAB.exe
How do I get the association to the new version?
