Multiple apps to open images
Posted on 1999-07-16
I know that it's possible to open a single file type with multiple applications. Of course one way to do that is to hold the shift key and right-click on the file, whereby you get a menu option "Open with...". That works to open graphics files with other than the default program, but it takes too long. With other file extensions, I've been able to go to Folder Options (Win98), click File Types, then Edit, and under the Actions list, click New, and then add a new application to open that file extension when I right-click on it. When I do that with a text file, for example, right-clicking on the file icon gives me other application options to open the file. But here's what I don't understand: that process doesn't work with jpeg's. When I right-click on a jpeg, I don't get that extra option listed in the context menu like I did with text files. Any suggestions?
