Macintosh Easy Open

Send Article to a Friend

Macintosh Easy Open, an extension from Apple which allows you to substitute eligible applications to open files created by applications you don't have, is now available with MacLinkPlus. The extension replaces the standard "application not found" dialog with a larger one that lists programs that can open the file and can optionally remember your preference so that it uses that program automatically. Other benefits include more specific file descriptions in the Finder's "Kind" field and color icons in Open and Save dialog boxes.
