Looking for a reliable and free-of-cost Windows 7 compatible application to mange Windows file associations.

The one integrated into Windows XP wasn't bad. The one integrated into Windows 7 is just sad.

Reliability is essential.

Open-source always a plus.

Nirsoft's FileTypesMan does what you're asking and is freeware.

I have used it, I don't remember that I had anything complicated to do with it - but the few times I've needed it, it's come in handy

It looks like this: FileTypesMan screenshot

  • Thanks. Have you used it, and is it reliable for you? I had tried an early version of it, and had trouble with it. Is it reliable now? Jun 7, 2015 at 19:03
  • I have used it yes, I don't remember that I had anything complicated to do with it - but the few times I've needed it, it's come in handy
