Setting the default Application Verb Programatically !
Posted on 2006-05-21
When you double click a document, the associated EXE (application) is launched and the document is loaded.
This is the default behaviour for most applications ie: it opens the file.
What I want is to change this default behaviour so that when I double click the document it will PRINT it instead of opening it.
I know how to change this default setting via the Windows Explorer UI : from a Folder Menu choose TOOLS > FOLDER OPTIONS> FILES TYPES> CHOOSE THE RELEVANT FILE EXTENTION AND CLICK ON ADVANCE> CHOOSE FROM THE LIST OF AVAILABLE VERBS AND SET DEFAULT.
How can the above be done Programatically in VB ?
