Heya, before formatting, I had a cool feature that was enabled, but I don't even remember how I did cause I've never got to reinstall windows XP that last 2 years.
When you right-click a file, you have the cotext menu, and in some cases,
we can see an "Open with..." option. When we click it, there's a list of random apps at the bottom, and "Recommended" ones on top. As you know, recommended ones are often those we succesfully used with a certain file type.
The feature I'm talking about is a new option in the context menu that
expands and shows all the recommended apps that usually are in the "Open with...".
It's very useful when we often have to open a file with different apps quickly.
Like opening an AVI in Virtualdubmod, modifying and saving it, then test it in WMP.
I'd like to know how to get this feature back. X-setup doesn't seem to have
it, or it's well hidden.
As you add apps to open things with they are added to the menu...
For example if you hilight a text file, shift + right click the file you can select open with, choose word/notepad/(any other text editor) and open the file...then if you repeat and do the same opening it with a different text editor it will be added to the menu list...
So if you first open it with word, then open it with wordpad, on the third try both word and wordpad will be in the menu....
The feature is more just windows remembering what will open which file extensions...
