"Open With" menu - Change the program names?
Posted on 2012-04-10
One of our users has Office 2003 and Office 2007 installed. He wanted his Excel 2003 to be the default Excel program when he opened Excel documents, so I found an article explaining the registry modification to allow 2003 to be default. However, he occasionally opens up 2007 Excel files and would like to simply right click on them, and choose "open with" and choose Excel 2007. The problem is, when he right clicks and does the "open with" command, there are two "Microsoft Office Excel" options, and they aren't descriptive enough to give their version names. I have to believe there is a way to add the "2003" or "2007" to these names, but I can't figure it out. We do know that the first Excel shortcut is the 2007 one, and he can remember that, but it would be nice to append the version to the shortcut names. Any ideas? By the way, he is running XP Pro version of Windows.
