A Common Interface for Setting the "Open with" property of all file types

Registered by Tony Yarusso on 2006-05-26

While there is currently a method for specifying how a particular type of file should open (right-click, properties, open with), it is clumsy and does not allow configuration of multiple file types at once, along with requiring the user to hunt out a file of the type they wish to change. There should be a single listing of all file types which allows modification of their open-with associated program accessible through the Nautilus Edit > Preferences settings. This is quite simple in concept; it just needs an additional access method programmed into Nautilus, so that users are not so confused/frustrated when they need to perform this type of action.
