File Association Manager 2 allows the user to quickly and easily manage Windows file-type associations. This includes creating new file types and extensions, changing associations, modifying actions, and numerous advanced File Type settings, such as DDE and Attribute Flags. An integrated shell context menu allows the user to automatically look up the file-extension properties of any file in Windows Explorer, by simply right-clicking on the file and choosing the "File Association" pop-up menu option. With a push of a button, you also can reference online resources for details on the currently selected file extension. A new automated backup feature backs up all user-modified file types by exporting current settings before any modifications are saved. This ensures that you can restore previous settings, in case of unexpected results.
