In XP, I was able to select the default action I want to take with a file by going to folder potions, file types, then selecting my extension and hitting advanced.I could then add things to the right-click menu, and select which option I wanted as the default.
In Vista, I cannot see how to do this. I do see how to change the program the file opens with, but this does not solve my issue.
Specifically, I have SAS files that I want to set up to open in a text editor when I double-click on them. If I set them up to open with SAS, there seems to be no way to change the default option to open with the text editor - it will only open the file in the SAS application. If I change the default program to be the text editor (Ultra Edit, in my case), I lose the ability to batch submit the job in SAS.
So is there a way to just edit the default action taken when double-clicking?
