If you always want Mapsource to open .gpx files when you click them you will have to associate them with Mapsource, not sure how in Windows 7.

Just like with other programs, you can open up multiple instances of Mapsource and cut/paste things between files too.
tbirdsp.....Yes, yes...my thinking was/is all wrong. Finally got it....many thanks for your undivided attention. Opening my file using Mapsource was it, not the otherway..wooo..... actually had to have a better register software like Uniblue though. Some PC glitch here!

Thanks again and I now can open .GPX'es with ease.

Cheers Amigo...
