Yes, you can make changes to file types 5 stars by JohnCorliss Oct 04, 2014 (Read all my 24 reviews)
This great little Nirsoft utility is an enhanced replacement for Windows Explorer's ToolsFolder OptionsFile Types. You can double click on a file type and make changes to its settings. NOTE though, that you have to scroll down past the peceived types and application entries (neither of which you can make changes to) to reach the file types (which you CAN make changes to.) As usual, the program is portable and requires no installation. It creates a configuration file for its settings within in the folder you expand the utility into. show Review details
Another great free tool 5 stars by Duszolap Aug 13, 2010 (Read all my 3 reviews)
For me it is a life saver - as I am type of user who likes to have full control over system and everything in order I always have been frustrated with some stupid naming for media files description in windows explorer - some movies are "movie clips" some "mkv file" etc - I tried to trying to manually unify those descriptions in registry but it can be tricky. There is a point where Filetypesman could save all efforts - with ease you can change all descriptions for extension, their associations and more - it essential for geeks. show Review details
It's outstanding ! 5 stars by Shodan816 Sep 26, 2009 (Read all my 43 reviews)
I am a huge fan of Nir Sofer, and this utility is no exception to the rule. It works great and I find it far easier to use than wading through Microsoft's file and folder options to accomplish the same thing. And, as opposed to an earlier comment, you can indeed make system changes with this program. My guess is the last reviewer is not familiar with the context menu. ;-) show Review details
