file types and the ability to add or remove them. I didn't see
anything about removal of installed apps. Adding or removing file
types in this tab has no effect.

tried a "compact" install once to see if that made a difference, but
it did not. Each time I install, the NoteTab icon listed in \Control
Panel\Add or Remove Programs\ is the "unins000.exe" icon labeled as
"NoteTab Pro (Remove only)" rather the NotePro.exe icon--both of which
are found in the NoteTab Pro Program Files folder. I have deleted the
"ntp495full.exe" installer and downloaded another copy to see if that
makes a difference, but it does not.

not too keen on making adjustments to my system registry for just one
application that I use half as much as many others. I work from home
as a consultant and my livelihood depends on my computer being up and
productive. My fear is that changes that might get NoteTab working
properly might have insidious affects on other applications.

Control Panel and the "unins000.exe" file in the Program Files folder.
Both have rendered the same results.

previously associated file types in the Association tab, the list is
empty. I do remember that after the first install of Pro and the
subsequent uninstalls of the Standard and Pro Trial versions, I
noticed that files that displayed the standard NoteTab white cross on
red field icons immediately before the uninstalls, were defaulting to
a generic icon immediately after the uninstalls. Since then, the
icons are of whatever application was at the top of the "Recommended"
list after I have attempted to associate files using the right click
"Open As" function.
> ...See the footers for signing up on the Off Topic list or go toAs stated, if the purpose of signing onto the Off Topic list is to
edit the system registry, I think I will hold off on that unless I am
totally wrong about the possibility of adverse affects to my computer.
