    While setting up my new W7 system a software package offered a readme
    file in .WRI format and Windows doesn't know what to do with
    it. Wordpad doesn't seem to exist anymore and I don't use MS Office.

    What should .WRI be associated with?

    While I have your attention, where in W7 do i look at and set filetype
    associations?

    That's odd, when I click on the Start Orb - All Programs - Accessories I
    see Wordpad as the last item in the folder on my Win7 Home Premium box.
    Do you not see it there too? You can also type wordpad in the search
    panel at the bottom of the start menu to find it as well.

    Filetype associations can be made/edited by clicking on Start then type
    in the search panel "filetype".

    Wordpad is at C:/Program files\Windows NT\Accessories

    The lnk is at
    C:/ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories

    Set file type associations

    The Nirsoft File Types Manager gives a lot more flexibility than the
    native Windows 7 file association utility. I got it because it allows me
    to assign more than one program for an extension.

    Thanks, yes it's in accessories. the filetype association is
    non-existent.

    I guess I have to get used to using the search box as my command
    shell. :)
