To manage all the file types in Windows, we have an option of “File Types” in the Folder Options of Windows present by default but with the help of this free tool called FileTypesMan, we can do more stuff.
FileTypesMan is definitely the alternative to the default File Types option. It displays the list of all file extensions and types registered on your computer. For each file type, the following information is displayed: Type Name, Description, MIME Type, Perceived Type, Flags, Browser Flags, and more.
FileTypesMan also allows you to easily edit the properties and flags of each file type, add, edit, and remove actions in a file type. To be able to use it, you just need to double click and run this tool as it requires no installation.
The tool is able to work on all Windows systems from Windows 98 to Windows 7. However, in some Windows 98 machines, an exception with CDFVIEW.DLL is occurred when starting FileTypesMan. To avoid this problem, go to the Options menu, and choose the ‘Don’t Load Icons’ option. After that, FileTypesMan should work properly, but without displaying the icons according to file types.
