Solved: Not working!

Hello Brink,

Thank you very much for all of your great tutorials for using and tweaking Windows 7.

I've used your tweak URL-add_Open_with.reg but it didn't worked as happened with Angel213. I'm using Firefox as default browser, but I also use Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. I have investigated the problem and found a solution that works for me. I've changed the reg file from

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\Open With]
@="{09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936}"

to

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\IE.AssocFile.URL\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\Open With]
@="{09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936}"

If you consider this a general solution, please feel free to publish this in your tutorials.

I'm using Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bits) SP1 with Region: Portugal

Thank you GeekUser, and welcome to Seven Forums.

That works much better. I cleaned it up a bit to be this instead, but does the same.


Code:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\IE.AssocFile.URL\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\{09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936}]
