File Extensions

Posted: 09-08-2008, 01:49 AM

Hi. Using the forum I have found Control Panel -> Default Programs. Bu
i want to be able to make the extensions show on certain extensions
like in XP. Like say I have PowerISO, and I wan't windows to show m
what is a .daa and what is an .iso. I really don't want to turn on th
option to show all known file types, because I don't want to see all o
them. Just ones that I chose. I know you could do this in XP, in th
file associations tab of folder options. Is there a way I can do this i
Vista

Hello Dcoryh192

I'm sorry, but you can only have it set to show all or no fil
extensions in Vista. :

I'm a newbie here. I would like to be able to open a few pictures with the
file extensions of .mix and .orig.. I don't like 3rd party software on my
computer. Is there a program thru Microsoft that will help me? If Microsoft
can't help me, I would be willing to download another program. Thanks

Nothing native in the OS unless you want to try and open the .orig
w/Notepad. We'd need to know where you got the files, what they are
supposed to be, etc. to give any kind of educated guess about the .orig
file.

I can't imagine that Paint would open your.orig files because that isn't a
general image file extension. Of course, you could always try opening them
in IrfanView, which opens many different types of image files.
