    Yes.you can change file association for .php files.
    In the any operating system such as windows xp , vista or window 7 , each file having extension name to identify the program with which this file have to open.that mean file have file association.you can change the file association manually by just doing some setting in control pane as given below.

    Change file association

    --> Go to "start" and then "control panel"
    --> now select the "view" menu and go to "folder option".
    --> In the folder option , you have to select the "file types".In that you have to select "New"
