  1. Adding file associations using registry entries?


    I've recently upgraded from Windows XP to 10 (64-bit), and the .reg files I've crafted for adding custom file associations don't work anymore. What's changed? How do I make them work again? Sample:

    Code: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.pdf] @="user.sumatra.pdf" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\user.sumatra.pdf] @="PDF Document" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\user.sumatra.pdf\\DefaultIcon] @="F:\\BIN\\SumatraPDF\\SumatraPDF.exe,1" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\user.sumatra.pdf\shell] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\user.sumatra.pdf\shell\open] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\user.sumatra.pdf\shell\open\command] @="\"F:\\BIN\\SumatraPDF\\SumatraPDF.exe\" \"%1\""[/quote]

    :)
