'File Types' in MS Explorer

  BBW 18:30 14 Oct 2004

I know it has been discussed before, but will someone remind me! Every time I load a new programme the file types change. Now when I click on a file in Explorer it won't open up. How can I change 'File Types' to a programme I know will open up a file. I'm using Win98SE. Many thanks for any help.

Hold down the Shift key and right click the file. From the pop-up list select Open With. Browse to find the program and tick the box that says in effect Always use this program to open this type of file.

To VoG, can you help again please. The files involved are *.AVI I am not able to carry out changes as the programme, JASC Animation Shop keeps coming up and informing me, 'Unable to perform task!

click here should work.

If not, uninstall then reinstall the program that you want to use to play .avi files.
