Customise your Send To menu by Dianne Reuby

Question : How can I open my file in a different program - easily?

Answer : Customise your "Send To" menu

Windows "associates" files with programs according torepparttar file extension andrepparttar 131864 software installed onrepparttar 131865 computer. So "myfile.doc" will be associated with your default word processor, "any.gif" will be associated with your default picture viewer or editor.

Great - just one click onrepparttar 131866 filename, and it loadsrepparttar 131867 program. What a time saver!

But what if you don't wantrepparttar 131868 file to load in its' associated program?

For example: my PC has quite a few .html files (web pages) stored on it. Some I've saved when surfing, some I've created. Windows associates these with my browser - after all, where else would you want to view a web page?

Quite often, in my web page editor! Or if I just want to make a small change to one of my pages, in my text editor. So, loadrepparttar 131869 program, choose File, then Open, search for my directory and file, and ... what was I going to do? Can't quite remember, now!

You don't have to go this route. In Windows 98, if you right-click on a file, you get a pop-up menu. One ofrepparttar 131870 choices is "Send To". You can easily add items to this menu, so that you can load in a file inrepparttar 131871 program of your choice rather thanrepparttar 131872 default program.
