Hi CGA1,

Shawn is the guy who adds them to the list - I was seconding your proposal that he add it.

It's a touch heavier on memory usage than Foxit - but no big deal. Great app.

It lets you manage what apps will open/preview/edit/print/etc various filetypes -- A feature removed from Vista/7.

Types is a free and lightweight utility for Windows that allows you to edit program associations, icons, context menus and other properties of various file types displayed in Explorer.

hi dgriff20, and welcome to sevenforums,

that looks like a real useful little app.

great first post, and +rep

i'm sure you'll like it here and come in useful..
And here's an alternative if you are looking to fiddle with associations (and as a part time designer I need to edit various image types in a different app than the one I want to get a quick view in) - FileTypesMan from the ever reliable Nirsoft. None of these are great for the newbie - but as long as you are adding rather than taking away the worst that can happen is a bunch of entries in your context menus half a mile long which don't do anything!

Anyway FileTypeMan worked flawlessly and I recommend it. (Can't believe MS left this functionality out - I'm not keen on rooting around in the registry unless I really have to.

+1 for Filetypesman, it's priceless when you have to fiddle with associations (and associated icons for that matter).

Here's one I like that has a very good free version called: Keyscrambler Personal:

Recommended by PC World's as one of the "15 Great, Free Privacy Downloads" - Protects your login credentials, credit card numbers, passwords, search terms, Java, Flash, PDF Forms, web email and more in IE, Firefox, and Flock against known and unknown keyloggers by encrypting your keystrokes.

The free version protects the most popular browsers as well as some other apps. The paid versions protect additional programs, but obviously, the most improtant thing to protect is the browsers which the free version does. It's just an extra layer of security, in case somehow, a keylogger or similar malware gets into your system.

I've been using this for a while and it certainly seems great. Unfortunately apart from the maker's assurances I have no idea whether it works to obfuscate all Keylogging software.
But at worst it doesn't interfere with my usage of Firefox (or the other software it attaches to) - the software is unobtrusive (just shows me what keystrokes it is encrypting - see image).

And if it really does work this is an incredibly useful layer of security - as the hidden Keylogger is seriously naughty!

Good recommendation!
