WAssociate - Software for managing File Associations


WAssociate is FreeWare written for Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 200 and XP. It manages the associations between file name extensions and file types stored in the Windows registry. These stored file types determine the appearance and actions supported for a file by Windows.

WAssociate enables control over double or right clicking a file, context menus, associated commands, icons and descriptions in Windows Explorer. Control freaks have easy access to the Windows registry key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, and more...

Need to Know: 
To use WAssociate you need to have or develop a basic understanding of how Windows assigns properties to file name extensions through file types and classes. To get you started a short introduction will be given in these pages.

Goal of WAssociate is to give easy access to the Windows registry key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, because that's where associations are stored. Editing the registry can be tricky and is a topic for advanced users. If you don't know anything about the registry and its HKEY_CLASSES_STUFF, advance with care.
