Windows 7: List of associated programs for a file type

List of associated programs for a file type

On XP there is a facility to add programs to a file type - you can add more than one program, and each one has a name (which appears in the pulldown list), and a program location, which can have options added to it, e.g. an html file could have a browse function, and an edit function (I want to use SeaMonkey with a -compose option, assuming I can do this). I don't want to have to pick one program as the default unless the other one is easily accessible. I know it's silly, but I can't find this in Windows 7 for the life of me! Help would be appreciated - I'm sure Windows 7 wouldn't kill a very useful XP facility... would they?!

The 3rd section talks about SeaMonkey and how to fix bugs.
Post back if this helps.

It seems to me that MS did decide that was too much responsibility for us to handle. IAC, check out NirSoft's excellent, free FileTypeMan.

Thanks to all of you - I will try FileTypeMan, and look up the SeaMonkey support...

Tried FileTypeMan - it's great - thanks, @paul1149!

However... it looks like I can't attach a -xxx option on the SeaMonkey .exe call the way we could with Netscape - does anyone know of any other way to get straight into SeaMonkey Composer, without having to go through the directories again to find the file that I already have?!

A Google search for open seamonkey with composer gave the correct syntax: seamonkey -editor

You can also add "filename.html" if you want to open directly to a specific file.

Fantastic, @Ztruker - works like a charm! Guess I gave up too quickly! Thanks a million!
