This isn't something that can be done from Mathematica since it is the OS that determines what app to launch when a document icon is clicked. However, it can be done. I can think of two ways to do this on a Mac. First, using =46inder, select a notebook, do cmd-i to bring up the meta information for that notebook, click on the arrow beside open with. Once this is done, set the mathematica viewer as the default application to use and finish by clicking on change all button. The other approach would be to get a RCDefaultApp. This is a freeware preference pane that allows you to set system wide preferences for which applications launch when document icons are clicked. It was created by Rubicode and can be obtained from the usual sources for Mac software.
