Suggestion of a new function : file's type association

hello everyone,

i would like to suggest a function of Platform: a temporary file association function.

for example, when Platform run, it will create a temporary association between file's type and portableapps, defined by user
- .zip / 7zip
- .tex / texmaker
- .txt / vim
- etc.

and when Platform close, it will reset these associations by default.

Some portableapps have already this function, like some mp3 player. I think it will be very useful for Portableusers.

Or, somebody can program a portableapp for this function (that can be run with Platform), i will very appreciate it. I'd like to do it, but i m not capable...

Thank you for your attention.

Yan

Programs for this already

Programs for this already exist, and it is already on the roadmap for the platform to do as well.

You already made your choice,

You already made your choice, but just a note here. eXpress can be used in Total commander by assigning it in the "Monitored Window Configuration".

Thanks

PFA is very simple to use, is enough for me now, but i take this information, thank you very much.

by the way, these two tools can not change the default internet explore (ie), i want to use my portable chrome by default, in case of clicking a link in some other applications. Do you have a idea please?
