Default how do i open files with windows shell common dll?

earlier today i was fiddling around trying to make a file work properly for a game and changed what program i used to open it. I kinda wish they'd mention that by doing so, you're now stuck using that as your default file opener. i tried to find windows shell common dll (the usually program), but i can't find it. anyone know the problem?
