Windows 7 explorer not showing filetype?

Post by PdfSnooper » Sat Nov 26, 2011 5:36 pm

Hi,

I'm seeing a bit of oddity.

In Windows 7 I have set PDF files up to be opened with PDF-XChange of course.

However when I look in windows explorer, in details view (ie where it shows name, date size) the "Type" column doesn't show "PDF" as i would expect, but it shows the file patch to PDF-XChange?

Any idea what that happens and if i can get it to just show PDF instead?

No idea how this happened, but I tried a bit of registry surgery and not it has gone away, so problem solved i suppose :)

Hello PdfSnooper,

Glad to hear that the "surgery" was successful!

:)

Cheers,
Stefan
