FileGeek is yet another great utility in our line of Mac tool boxes for systems management. If you've used a Mac operating system prior to Mac OS X, you should know the dreaded error message "Sorry, the application that created that document could not be found." Sound familiar? With FileGeek, you'll never have to see it again.
With FileGeek, users can maintain file Associations and assign certain programs to open files with certain file extensions or certain file types.Assign any program to open an array of different files.
FileGeek comes with over one hundred and fifty file presets, so you can apply these file attributes without having to do any research at all. It covers everything from Apple's iTunes to Microsoft's MS Word 2001.
In just two clicks, the file attributes have been changed, and it has been properly associated. If there is a program you need to attribute a file to, and it is not included as a preset, feel free to contact us about adding it in a future version.
Users can also modify other features hidden by the Finder, such as ability to use custom icons, bundle bit, the ability to make a file hidden, and more.
The option to toggle invisibility is excellent in the event that you need to hide a file or folder in a hurry, or place it out of reach for safe keeping. This is a great Mac utility that no user running Mac OS 9 or lower should be without!
