Angry Change default file manager

I just installed Zorin 11. It comes with Nautilus but I want to use PcmanFM. I installed that but for the life of me I can't figure out how to make it the default. I've been reading all kinds of threads and none of the suggestions are working. Sweet Jesus - it shouldn't be this difficult. Why is there no option to specify a default file manager under Default Applications?
