When  you come  across a work file that won’t auto-open or another person sends you a weird media file that your machine  doesn’t recognize, it’s often too easy to wind up there. Windows users have a better option. OpenWithEnhanced sets up a context menu option to find and install the right app for the job. Here’s how to use it:


  1. Download and install OpenWithEnhanced. 
  2. When you’re confronted with a file type you’ve never used  before–or you just want to see if you’ve got better options available than your default program–right-click it, select “Open with,” then select “Choose default program…”
  3. now  u must see a window with a list of applications, installed and uninstalled, with additional information popping up as you mouse over them. You can select an app you’ve already installed or click “look for the appropriate program on the Web” at the bottom to go to the download page.

Then its done . Of course, you may still find a few files that are sharply  mysterious, but for majorityt files, OpenWithEnhanced should get the work done.
