This is the problem: every time I reinstall windows, I spend several weeks afterwards setting it up. Nowadays, most settings (files) can be copied, so it's a little faster than it used to be. But one things that annoys me greatly is all those text files of various extensions (.txt, .dat, .tab, .prn, ....) for which in that period I'll have to "Open with ..." and "Always use this ...".
Is there a way to copy current file associations and then from that backup copy to re-use the ones that are currently in the new windows installation ?
Or, another approach, is there a way to associate some editor (let's say, vim, which will open pretty much anything) to all text files (anything non binary, actually) ?
All ideas on the subject welcome.
And happy New Year to all.
