Add Application to File Type Context Menu
Add a second application that can open a file type by default (hah! try
this to set up both Word97 and Word2000 to open *.doc).
Inside an Explorer window, select View, Options, File Types. Scroll to
desired type, such as *.doc. Click Edit button, click New. In the text box
under Action, type command name that will appear in the right-mouse menu,
such as Open with Word97. Then, in the Application Used To Perform Action
box, click Browse, navigate to the *.exe program that will open the
document, select it, and click Open. Click OK to exit New Action dialog box.
You should see the new command in the Actions list. Click Close twice.
Note: Double clicking a *.doc file in Explorer will still cause it to
open with Word2000 (or whichever version of Word is the default), but
right-clicking the doc brings up the choice, "Open with Word97." Very cool.
