Can anyone please explain why I get this error?

I have attached a screenshot but just in case, the error message is:

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.

Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.”

 

Error:

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create and association in the Default Programs control panel.
