  1. Difference between 2 files that have the same extension


    Hi 1st time here, I have a situation where files are being written to a folder with the same file extension (.art) and they can be either a csv type or a PDF and I want to copy the csv files only to another folder to be FTP to a site. I have been looking at Powershell as I need to run this daily and obviously can schedule a script with Powershell. Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Can a file extension(.flv) be added to Default Program Associations.

    Hi Fred,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you are facing issues associating a particular file extension with a program on Windows 10. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    To assist you better, please provide the information:

    When you say that "Default Program Associations", are you referring to the list of default applications in default programs settings?



    I want you to be informed that all the file extensions is listed in the default program settings which is displayed under

    In default program list, all the programs or application will be listed. Then we can select each program as default program for opening a particular file.

    I suggest you to refer to the below steps to make default program for a particular file extension.

    1. Type "Control Panel" without the quotes in search box and click on it.

    2. Click on Programs.

    3. Then click on Default Programs and click on Choose Default for this Programs.

    4. Select .flv file from the list.

    Also you can try other steps to associate the a particular extenstion with the program.

  3. File extension is different than file type

    In windows explorer, I have a file extension .wb3 quattro pro 7 different than what the file type quattro pro 16, .qpw is and the file opens in the file type, quattro pro 16. I've tired changing in properties .wb3 which has the correct program listed
    first however, it opens with quattro pro 16, .qpw. I've went into administrator command prompt to find what extensions were
    associated with and this was the response .qpw=QuattroPro.Notebook.16 and .wb3=QuattroPro.Notebook.7

    I've tired some other things, however, nothing has worked, can somebody help to resolve this issue?

    File extension *.docx

    Hi Randy,

    To change the file extension when saving a document in Word 2013, you may follow the steps below:

    • Click on File; then, select Options from the list.
    • In the Word Options window, choose Save.
    • Under Save files in this format, select *.doc from the list.
    • Hit OK button to confirm and save the changes.

    If ever your Word 2013 application is not recognizing the changes you have made, you may restart the application; however, if the issue still persists, we suggest that you repair it. To do this, see this
    link.

    We would appreciate it if you could get back to us and provide us your feedback.
