Many Linux file managers identify file type regardless of extension. For example, when I double click on a text file with whatever extension or no extension at all, it looks the contents of file and determines if it is a text file and opens a text editor. This is extremely helpful when editing conf files.

Is there a file manager on Windows that has this feature?

  • Where would the MIME type be stored? Or do you want the file manager to analyze the file's content and try to estimate the MIME type? – RockPaperLz- Mask it or Casket Oct 19 '20 at 17:34
