Hi Harvey and Wndy,
(Let's take this over to the Off Topic list if you haven't figured
it out yet please. ;)
Harvey is correct. Rarely have I seen anybody successful in using
Windows Explorer (or My Computer) to associate NoteTab with file
types. I'm sure there are those that have done it though. Anyway,
you can normally just go into NoteTab like Harvey said and in
View | Options | Associations > Add the file types you want to
associate with NoteTab. No wildcards or periods, just txt, otl,
If that does not wok or if it is already there, use Remove and
remove the file type. Click on OK to update the registry and then
try again to use Add. If that does not work and if you have been
messing around in Windows Explorer (or My Computer) trying to do
it, go back into Windows Explorer and in the case of say txt,
change the association to Notepad. In the case of a non-standard
like OTL, delete it. Close out all those windows and go back into
NoteTab and try associating again in the Association tab.
I think the problem comes in because NoteTab looks for the way it
does it in Windows Explorer | Folder Options, actually, the
system registry in that the wording has to be exactly the way it
wants to see it. Don't ask me why NoteTab has anything to do with
it, I just know that it has to be "worded" correctly.
