Here are three methods. The first two are free but don't give you exactly what you want. The third requires a third-party utility and works perfectly.
(1) Right-click on a file and from the menu choose Open With... then choose the version of InDesign you want.
(2) Create an alias for your InDesign versions and place them on your Desktop. Drag your InDesign file onto the alias of the version you want to open.
(3) Purchase Soxy from Rorohiko:
NOTE: Rorohiko says the version that supports InDesign CC 2014 is coming soon, they're waiting to test the new version before they release it.
These options are good when you want to open ONE file.
What is the option to open ALL FILES in InDesign9.2?
Problem we are facing is that when we do a Change All on Mac, it switches back to InDesign2014
We are on Mac and this is happening on All the Machines. Is it something that is controlled?
Not sure if it works on Mac, but on Windows if you install CC after CC2014 it will become the default.
If you use Soxy, you can set exactly what version you want to open the file, for all files.
Select one file, cmd+I(Information), select open with, select the Application, click on change all, and then confirm the dialog and now it is the default program on the Mac.
Yes, I understand thats the standard way where you click on change All and
it does the job. But when you have CC and CC2014, as soon as you click on
CC, it turns it back to CC2014 apps. This happens with Illustrator,
InDesign and InCopy.

Is CC2014 open when you try it? It should be closed, if a newer version on the Mac is running it will always capture any file of that type automatically.
What is so difficult about starting InDesign CC and choosing File / Open en select the file you want to open? I don't understand this need to double click on a file itself to be honest...
Make the association in Bridge and open from there.
Hej Frans, imaging the most complex designing department you can. We have
100s if servers n the files are scattered all over but the shortcuts to
these folders are at one place. If our users start browsing to reach to the
location it will be impossible to work.
Moreover, I cant just give workaround because I cant solve the problem.
There has to be a way.

If you don't want to use CC2014, why are you not simply uninstalling it?
