Brinks Tutorial on setting file assoc question

Hi everybody, can I use the screenshots that Brink provided to set my file associations , the reason I ask is because whenever I have tried I just don't know what a lot of these extensions mean.

The screenshots at least show me which file extensions belong to what program group, which is great .


Thank you

What do you mean "can I use the screenshots"? If you could rephrase your question, it would help. Thanks,
