OPEN WITH .....?

Hello,
how does one use the  OPEN WITH  function in windows . Is there a SITE which deals with dummies like me. I am stumped  everytime my program won't open as I do not have any idea what to do with this Open With  thing.   Thanks.

Alot of these files are specific examples, and it would be hard to compile a list for all of them, however, i would be willing to help you with any file you want, just email me at ben82584@hotmail.com and tell me the file name (including ending) and i will tell you which program, just accept this answer, and start emailing me the file names.

If you right click on an icon, and the application is "unknown" to the OS, (i.e. file.doc is unknown unless you have a Microsoft Word), then you will get the open with... option.  You would need to know what kind of file it is, as opening that file.doc with real player will not work.  If this is a particular file or files, post the full file extensions, (doc, exe, wav,...) and I'll tell you what to use to open it.

For win95, try:

and for 98 try:

http://www.conitech.com/windows/win98.asp

This guy did a good job with his site, and you can become pretty knowlegable with windows.

Hey Ben,
what's the deal?  You desperate for points or something?  Don't you know that you post as a comment until the postee asks you to repost as an answer.  And if you read the question, the asker wanted a site for information, and an explanation of how to use it, not an email address of someone.  Remember, this site keeps email addresses confidential for the reason that not everybody wants you to know their email address.

Sorry to cause a botherance, but if you'll read my answer, i think i explained the basic problem with the web site, on my computer, there are 200 different file ascociations and it would be hard to document them all, so lesley, just email and we can get you started fixing your troubles.
