in thread Very basic question!

but that gives me a thought, does anyone know how to add multiple associations? ... something that will allow you to pull-up a little menu with right-click and have the choice to run, edit, copy, paste, blah... i wouldn't mind knowing how to do that if anyone knows off the top of their head

Yes, you open an explorer window and go to the view menu, then options. There should be a tab that says file types. If you select this and then highlight the file type you want to alter, it will give you a list of options. One of these will be highlighted - this is the default, it will be invoked with a double click. The other options are available though a right click on the file in explorer or it's icon.

You can edit actions that are already there, or add new ones. If you examine some of the actions on the filetypes that are already there, it will give you examples of the kind of things that you can do.

Have Fun!

P.S. Please don't tell anybody that I answered a windows question ;-)
