Don't let rogue software take over your file associations. Open files your way!
Associate This is a file extension manager that works "behind the scenes" to protect your system from software that changes your file associations without your knowledge.
Associate This watches for changes to your file associations and allows you to block changes to all associations or configure individual extensions on a case-by-case basis. It gives you control over when and how you are notified of changes (or attempted changes) to associations. Associate This prevents young computer users or employees from making undesirable changes to Windows.
Associate This also provides the following features:
"Open Tracker" lets you re-open the last file you worked with using the program of your choice or configure Associate This to always ask which program to use with a particular file extension.
Integration with Windows lets you launch any file from Windows Explorer (or another file management program) and then select the program in which you want to view it from a pop-up menu. (This feature is indispensable for designers of web pages and other multimedia content that must be compatible with a variety of web browsers and media players.)
The "Association Detective" can search your computer for additional programs that can support the types of files you work with.
"Backup and Restore" allows you to save your file associations and restore them to a previous state in the event unwanted changes occur.
Associate This offers quick, one button access to many Associate This features as well as detailed information and additional configuration options for advanced computer users.
