SOLVED: Open with Script
« on: July 21, 2011, 06:57:31 AM »
Open with Script

usually we open a file with the same program.
But sometimes we need a flexible and fast way to open files. In my case : pdf files.
Sometimes I need to open with adobe acrobat 7. Others with pdf-xchange viewer or even with the pro version of the same program.
I would like a script to execute and give me the possibility of election of the final launcher for that file.
May be an ini file to control the program selection to use to open that file.

Best Regards

for these 'Open with' options, you could try F4Menu, OpenExpert or ChoiceEditor.

I was even planning to go as far as to suggest removing the default handler for .pdf files so that the Open With... menu would pop up, but it seems lanux128 beat me with better suggestions. :)

+1 for OpenExpert

and FYI I'm pretty sure you can set up multiple file associations - just name them to suit the end application and they'll come up in the context menu when you click on a file
