Is there a way to get a .PRT file to open directly in the modeling app when I click on the file?

The .prt file will open the application it was last saved in. So open the file, start modeling, and save it.

You might also have to make sure file associations are set to start NX. For example, if Creo was installed after NX, file associations will be set to try to open the .prt file in Creo.

Whenever I click on the prt file the main NX page opens. The file itself does not open. Once NX is open I must either drag the file to NX, or select open and pick a file.

Are you double clicking on .prt file? Generally, what I know is file is opened in software/program you've associated it with.

Q: How to open part file in required version of NX by double click?

Solution:

In order to correctly associate .prt file to NX use an external tool like
'Defaults Program Editor', since manual editing of the Windows registry is
rather difficult.
Download that tool here http://defaultprogramseditor.com/ : it is a simple
tool, it doesn't need any installation (just a .exe to launch when you need
it). 

After downloading it just run the executable and follow these main steps.

01) Select "File Type Settings"
02) Select "Context Menu"
03) Select ".prt" extension > Next.
04) Select "Edit Selected Command..."
05) Select "Browse" to specify the path of "ugs_router.exe". It will be
available at %UGII_BASE_DIR%\UGII\ugs_router.exe
06) Select "Open".
07) Complete the Program path entry by adding these ones (-ug -use_file_dir
-version=V25.5 "%1" , where -version=V25.5 identifies NX7.5).
   Following are the versions of NX:
   v25.5=NX7.5
   V26.0=NX8
   V26.5=NX8.5
   V27.0=NX9

   For e.g. the complete line of "Program path" will look like this
("E:\Siemens\NX75\UGII\ugs_router.exe" -ug -use_file_dir -version=V25.5 "%1").
08) Select "Next"
09) Select "Save Context Menu" > OK.
10) Close the "Default Programs Editor" dialog.
11) Double click on the NX part file and now it will open in the set version of
NX i.e. NX7.5
