I had discovered the processes described here during my lengthy investigations of Windows Vista.
BUT one thing I never found, was the equivalent, in Windows Vista, to creating extra actions against a given filetype in Windows XP.
For example, I often use Wordpad to read the text of files that may not primarily be intended for reading, such as a BAT or CMD file, or even a VBS file. Under XP I could create a new action, say, named "Wordpad", and assign the action to Wordpad. Thus, files may not only be "opened" but "wordpadded" (i.e. edited), an the extra action shows when a file of the type concerned is subject to a right mouse click.
Where is that facility for creating such extra actions in Windows Vista ?
