    Yes, this comes close.
    But problem is:
    - can not add a new filetype
    - can not add an application (only select from existing list)

    So my quest to create the .XYM having 3 openwith entries is impossible using the tool.

    I really wonder why MS decided to make this so darn hard to do.
    Have a close look at Gunners File Type editor.. it has interesting options for Open With.

    Launch it, right click on an extension in its GUI, Tools, Open With Editor.

    Is there a way to change the default program in the explorer context menu for specific choices? For example I want to set the for image files (.jpg, .png etc.) to Paint Shop for the "Edit" choice, but leave Win picture viewer as the choice for "Preview". Paint Shop is already listed under "Open with Corel Paint Shop Pro, and appears under the "Open with" flyout.
    A program like Context Menu Manager by Fahmy should let you do what you want, if you can cope with its astonishingly comprehensive GUI. 'Overwhelming' - Softpedia. Current version is not free, but a recent version was.
    Context Menu Manager Download - Softpedia
    This download says its a free version (not checked)
    Download free Context Menu Manager 2015.3
    If you have a look around you may find the last free version. (I think it was 2015.3- current is 2015.9)

    Thanks! 2015.3 is actually a "22 day trial", but it doesn't resize and I can't see a lot of the window. I wound up using Default Programs Editor which does what I needed it to.

    Hi, glad to hear that. I got CMM as a giveaway a couple of times, so must have been an earlier version that was freeware. I noted one in 2011 that was.
