Registry Editing

Recommended Posts

Hi, anyone here good when it comes to Regedit?

I'm trying to add a program I made to open Gif Images by default.

well, I'm going to add a menu to rightclick, but it doesn't want to display -.-

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\giffile\shell\Gif Viewer\command

@="D:\Programs\GifViewer\GifViewer.exe""%1"

That should add a menu, but it doesn't...

Is there any limit on menus in rightclick?

Cause Photoshop adds a few too, so thought that might overwrite it...

Well, if anyone has any ideas, lmk :D

Maybe you could go the simple way ?

Check out the folder options > file types

It lists all extensions and you can define

for (nearly) everyone, which app opens it

by default...

You could do that yes. lol

Why didn't I think of that...

Well, the thing is, I want to make a reg change from my program, so it associates .Gif to my program by clickin a button inside "Gif Viewer".

I even removed the old Open in giffile, but photoshop still opens it -.-

Yep, tried both. Photoshop still opens them.

+ I used File associations and added Gif viewer to shell.

But it doesn't seem to have anything to do with giffile in registry, cause no Gifviewer entry was added.

there is usually HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\giffile\shell\open\command & HKCR\shell\open\command..

even search for photoshop.exe in the registry should find how it is doing it..
