2.1.3 Running FEBio from Explorer
A third method of running FEBio, which often is very convenient, is to run FEBio from Windows Explorer. To do this, first open Explorer and browse to the folder that contains your FEBio input files. Next, right-click on the input file and select Open With. Now select Choose default program. A dialog box appears with a list of programs to open the input file. If FEBio is not on this list yet, click the Browse button. Locate the FEBio executable (e.g. in C:/Program Files/FEBio2/bin), select it and press the Open button. Now select FEBio in the Open With dialog box and press Ok.
After you have done this once, the process simplifies. After you right-click the input file, FEBio should now show up in the Open With menu item and can be selected immediately without having to go through all the previous steps.
