How to set OverDrive's desktop app to open audiobooks automatically

Sometimes a "file association" error occurs on your computer, which prevents OverDrive's desktop app from opening downloaded audiobooks. If you're having trouble opening audiobooks in OverDrive's desktop app, try the steps below to make sure that your computer opens ODM files (which are used to download audiobooks) in OverDrive's desktop app.

Note: If you're using the Firefox browser, you'll also need to change the ODM file association there (to make sure Firefox opens ODM files with the correct program).
