    How do I get a list of current file associations

    I want to see the full list of file associations on my system (Vista 64) but I can find no way to get this information. In XP and previous versions of windows, one could get that info from windows explorer. In Vista, it seems you can only display those associations for a given application. Is there a way to obtain the full list in plain vanilla Vista or with an addon ?

    Hello Seelig,

    You can find this list in Default Programs. It will list every association for files and protocols.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
