How do I add programs to the "open with" program selection list?

Some basic apps are missing when right clicking a file and choosing the Open With command.  Specifically, Microsoft Power Point and Adobe Reader.  Is there a way to manually add apps to the program selection list?

Hi mossyback

open with > choose a program > browse > select the path of the program ( mostly it will be c:\program files)
when you open once the next time the program will be there on the list

all the best
