Associate file extension with an application?

I have DOSEMU installed on Suse Linux (Leap 15) and also have several archives of DOS programs I'm playing around with. DOSEMU will load a file from the console like so:
dosemu "/home/DOS/APP DIR/APP.EXE"
Would I would like to do is be able to click on a file of .exe or .com and have it automatically load with DOSEMU. How would I go about this?

XFCE actually, but thank you. I did a search and found a reference to an older version of XFCE. From this I worked my way into the settings, there I found the MIME Type Editor. *.EXE files where associated with WINE, I just double clicked this and changed it to Dosemu.

Still have to figure out how to add an additional extension *.COM. That's next.
