Thanks  but when I do that they all have 'Change all' selected but still open in AD Beta! Also AD Beta opens with product key window and I can only get rid of it by forcing Apple to quit the app rather forcing quit from the Dock.

Not sure if that´s an ElCapitan special issue - but if it proceeds I´d just open my files in Finder via context menu->open with.....

I think I'll just delete AD Beta as I haven't yet tried it!

Are you sure you are doing this right? This has been a feature of the Mac OS for many years & it definitely is supported by El Capitan.

See for example this article (which includes a short video) for step by step instructions.

Have you perhaps moved AD from its default location in the Applications folder?

It may need to be there in order for you to run the Beta.
