Easy Open 1.1.1 - Shareware US $ 7


Easy Open is an elegant way to access your favorite applications from within the contextual menu of the finder.

Imagine the following scenario: You just received a document from your friend via e - mail. Let's say it's a Microsoft Word document. When you double click on it your Macintosh will start MS Office, but perhaps you're favorite business application is Apple Works. You would now drag & drop the document on Apple Works and it will open the document, but you'll always have to drag & drop the document on Apple Works if you want to open it again. Easy Open has got the solution for you. You simply control - click on the document and select "Set default application to - Apple Works". Now you can double click on the document and it will always open with Apple Works.
In order for this to work you first have to create a list of your favorite applications. You can do this by either control - clicking on an application and selecting "Add application to list" or you can use the comfortable "Easy Open settings" control panel. You cant sort the applications into different submenus, so that e.g. "Apple Works" is in the submenu "Business applications".
