My OS is 32bit Win7 Pro.
In Windows Explorer, when you right click a file, a drop down menu opens showing options to choose.
I'd like to add another option on that menu.
How do you do that?
(It was easy in WinXP.)
Please let me know if this request is more appropriate in another forum.
Hmmm. I have an XP reg file to add a Context Menu entry "open in Office Word" to rtf, txt files.
Even with updating to point directly at Winword.exe on my Seven set up it doesn't work. It opens Word but doesn't open the file.
What happens if you chose "Open With", "Chose Default Program" and then Browse, will it let you add another program to the list.
I see that my open with contains both Word, and Open Office as well as Adobe Indesign, and Word Pad.
Ok, I checked!
Well I'll answer my own question, I opened Browse and selected TextAloud as the default program to open text documents, it added it to the list of programs that will open the files when I click on the "Open with" drop-down message.
But like Elmer, now when I click on it, it opens TextAloud but not the file.
And I thought this would be easy. All the other programs except Indesign which can't open .doc files anyway open the document when selected including Open Office. I have no idea why Indesign is even on the list.
The only thing I can suggest is that these programs all got added to the menu during installation and you might give reinstalling the program again a try, taking special note to see if there is anyplace during the indallation where it asks you what kind of files you want it to open.
