Hey everyone, got a question.

Does anyone know how I can change the File types in Windows 2000. Because the defaults are rather annoying (one example is a GIF is trying to open with Internet Explorer).

Anyways, I'm just wondering if theres any specific registry keys that deal with this. Alternatively would it be possible to modify some files on my OS disk that will install the file types how I want them.

I know all about automation and have created my disk, just wanted to fiddle with that setting so the user doesn't have to. thanks

here is a pic of what i mean.

You want Windows 2000 settings to be in place when you install the OS, have a look at IE.INF in my fileset. It's got all sorts of goodies and can show you all sorts of things via example.

For a related problem, you can put 'wassociate' in the "sendto" menu. If you then think some proggie you have installed have diddled the association, send a document to "Winassoc", and it will display the association currently in effect. You can then use the menus etc to change these accordingly.
