Activate FileCenter's Save/Open Dialogs for a Program

FileCenter's Save/Open dialog integration can theoretically work with the majority of Windows applications. This article describes how to activate them for your favorite program.

To add Save/Open support for a program:

  1. Go to FileCenter's Settings
  2. Select "Save/Open Dialogs" on the left
  3. Select "Enable Only for Selected Applications Below"
  4. Next to the list of "Supported Applications", click "Add"
  5. Browse to the actual .exe file for the new program

    (HINT: If you don't know where your program's .exe is, find a shortcut to it on your desktop or in your Start menu. Right-click on this shortcut and select "Properties". The properties dialog will show the name of the .exe and where you can find it.)

  6. Select the .exe and click "Open"
  7. The .exe should now appear as a "Supported Application"
  8. Click "Apply" and "OK"

Now test the new program carefully. Not all programs work with the Save/Open dialogs, but most will. If the program works well, let us know the name of the .exe so we can add support for it in future versions.

A better solution starts right here.
