App of the Day: OpenWithAdd

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:

  1. Open OpenWithAdd and select the application
  2. Click "Register"
  3. 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)
    Screenshot: Right click file > Open With > Choose default program...
  4. Select the program, check "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and click "OK"
    Screenshot: Select application > check 'Always use the selected program to open this kidn of file' > click 'OK'

Kudos to the developer for making the application portable, just unzip and run!
