How to open multiple files with different file types in Vista Explorer
Posted on 2008-06-16
In WINXP Windows Explorer, if I selected FILE1.TXT and FILE2.DOC then pressed enter, WIndows would launch Notepad (my Default) and Word 2003. Now that I've moved to Vista, I have lost that capability it seems. EVEN IF it is the same program, selecting files with mildly different extensions prevents me from launching them. E.g., FILE3.XLSM and FILE4.XLSX are BOTH Excel 2007 files, but i cannot get them to launch from Vista when both are highlighted/selected.
Anyone know how to make Vista Explorer work like XP's Windows Explorer ?
