Have a problem registering an application with a file type? Selecting the application in the open with dialog box not working? That was my frustration with my Windows 7 install… until I found this cool application: OpenWithAdd
To register a file type with an application:
- Open OpenWithAdd and select the application
- Click "Register"
- Go to Explorer, right click your file > Open with > Choose default program… (the application you added should now also be listed in the Open with submenu)
- Select the program, check "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and click "OK"
Kudos to the developer for making the application portable, just unzip and run!
