Change File Association

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to change File Associations?

IE: I want to make .otf, .reg, .sct, .shb, .shs, .vbe, .vbs, .wsc, .wsf, .wsh all be associated with notepad.exe ^_^

-Like you would if you into Tool/Folder Options

I am also trying to turn on things like Show Known file ext's and hidden files using au3 or any other means.

Can anyone with experience on this please help?

Thanks,

avery

This line I found in the registry from au3 but I did find all the others, I just had this in my clipboard as an example.

Does anyone know if I can change these reg keys and accomplish the same thing as the link you posted?

I don't want to break anything -- except for what I want to remap from my original post.

Please and thanks.

You should be able to change the registry keys and have that work, but check and make sure that no reboot is needed - although I seriously doubt that it will.

As always, though, make sure you back up your registry before testing (or even better, perform the testing on a VM).

Ok I downloaded some program called VirtualBox by Sun and have XP running in it now. Thanks for the great advice.
