Change online meeting Application–Lync 2013 vs Windows 8 Lync MX App

When you Join a meeting in Lync 2013 and you also have installed the Lync MX App for Windows 8 then Windows asks you which application you want to use to join meetings.
When Windows asks you which program you have the option to select “Lync” which is actually the Lync MX App for Windows 8 and “Microsoft Lync” which is Lync 2013.
Windows only asks this question once so if you accidentally selected the “Lync” App for Windows 8, you are stuck with this app and does not provide all the functionality.
