Default Programs

Postby Nicsoft » Mon May 15, 2017 4:22 am

Could a Prefs-program like "Default Programs" that MS Windows uses, be made for AmigaOS 4.1?
For the settings in SYS:Prefs/Env-Archive/Sys/

It's not super user-friendly, but this function already exists.

Prefs/Deficons.

Select a file-type, right click and select "Information".

The def_icon opens (if you have an icon installed).

Select the Icon tab and select your default tool.

That Prefs-program is so difficult for me to understand, that editing icon by icon in SYS:Prefs/Env-Archive/Sys/
Is for me, much easier (but a very slow procedure). Prefs/Deficons seems to be aimed at "rocket scientists"...
