And so does XNView. We don't need a 2nd list with programs. We already got one.

Although this suggestion is useful, I am not that thrilled about adding complexity to the Options window...
...just to add specific changes for the 2nd way to handle files (aka: "a little of not much"), which can be handled through another standard way (Windows Options or Registry).

Me = :?

I know that the 'Windows' way is not good... but there must be a tool that deals with that conveniently!!! I tried Fast Explorer 2006, but I couldn't find a way to group filetypes in order to handle them quickly... Might it be what "classes" are for? Some other tools to do that?

PS: I don't oppose this suggestion. I will just follow this thread to check that Options don't get too complex...

File Type Manager is a Windows utility program that allows you to manage Windows file types, actions and shell extensions. It offers far more functionality than similar programs or the built-in Windows tool. Apart from that it is one of the only programs available that allows you to manage shell extensions.

When I double click on a jpg file I want it to open in XnView - I've set up the association in Win7... so far, no problem. But within
XnView I want to open it in the associated editor - Photoshop CS6. At this stage I can't find any easy way to do that.

I love the suggestion in the first post and it's just what I'm looking for. Did anything ever come of this thread? Or is there something
I'm missing?
