A tool that will show us a dialog with the programs that an associated file can be opened.

For example :
i have on my desktop a movie called movie1.mpg and when i go to open it with double-click, a dialog or a small window appears with the associated programs that are in the computer
and can open the movie.. (like media player classic, kmplayer etc) ..

Not sure it's what you want, but have you looked at FileTypesManager, freeware by by Nir Sofer?


Quote

FileTypesMan is an alternative to the 'File Types' tab in the 'Folder Options' of Windows. 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, as well as it allows you to add, edit, and remove actions in a file type.

ChoiceEditor works great for this!  I don't have TC, and it works.  Thanks TucknDar!!!!

it does not associate with filetypes from registry ..

EDIT/ I'm not saying it does work - I had problems with it but I didnt hear of anyone else having trouble with it

I thought the key bit was from cthorpe's post:

I then associated jpg, png, and gif with ChoiceEditor

I wouldn't have thought of that myself...
