Thanks for the links. I've had needs for some of those lists.

I have also found that with a broadband connection that when MS does not know what program to open a file they give you an option which [browse] sends you to the net. This sometimes has the answer but not always
Good links, Jiggy

Just saw this thread (I was gone for a while :)).

This (http://filext.com) is the one I've always used. Found out about it on these forums; it's the most comprehensive list I've seen.

This will sound bad......
Have a cheating boyfriend and would like to actually show him the proof that he says I don't have.
So, I need to locate files (including past emails) that he's deleted. Went through the registry but can't "open" anything that I've found. Downloaded "Power Archiver" but doesn't seem to find the files.
Need something quick and easy.
Any suggestions?? and NO, asking him to fess up doesn't work.
Thanks in advance

Welcome to the PC Guide forums.
Posting a new subject into an existing sticky thread is not a good thing to do, as stickies are for reference for users looking for the posted files or links. We don't support illegal or unethical stuff either. Looking into someone's e-mails and computer files without their consent is certainly not legal.
The way to deal with cheaters is to dump them if they won't come clean, but that should be discussed in After Hours forums, not here.

:) I had the same problem with an old computer. What I did was go to change the start up boot. I can't remember what I did but I think I just change the sequence & I manage to open Window. Then I did some 'cleaning' & it works fine after that. I don't know whether it will work for you though.

I'm not sure I'm suppose to answer the above but thanks for the filetxt list.

you can set which program opens what ever kind of file through -
Folder options -> file types[tab]

There are lots of file extensions related to particular program. extension are the identifiers to find the file of a particular type. You can find all the extension when you save or open a file.
