Why does double-clicking a .linq file open a different .exe from the one on my taskbar?


When I installed LinqPad, I pinned it to the taskbar, so I can press Win-6 to open it quickly. This opens C:\Program Files (x86)\LINQPad5\LINQPad.exe

However, if I double-click a .linq file, it opens C:\ProgramData\LINQPad\Updates50\526\LINQPad.exe

Both are version 5.31.00. Why do I have two different .exe files? More to the point, can I make it so that I will always get the same .exe, irrespective of how I open it. That way my keyboard shortcut will always work.
