.wri filetype association ad associations in general.

While setting up my new W7 system a software package offered a readme
file in .WRI format and Windows doesn't know what to do with
it. Wordpad doesn't seem to exist anymore and I don't use MS Office.

What should .WRI be associated with?

While I have your attention, where in W7 do i look at and set filetype
associations?

That's odd, when I click on the Start Orb - All Programs - Accessories I
see Wordpad as the last item in the folder on my Win7 Home Premium box.
Do you not see it there too? You can also type wordpad in the search
panel at the bottom of the start menu to find it as well.

Filetype associations can be made/edited by clicking on Start then type
in the search panel "filetype".

Wordpad is at C:\Program files\Windows NT\Accessories

The lnk is at
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories

Set file type associations
Control Panel > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with
a program

The Nirsoft File Types Manager gives a lot more flexibility than the
native Windows 7 file association utility. I got it because it allows me
to assign more than one program for an extension.

Thanks, yes it's in accessories. the filetype association is
non-existent.

I guess I have to get used to using the search box as my command
shell. :)
