View Full Version : 7-zip file extensions

29-01-2011, 02:58 PM
After downloading and installing the fabulous 7-zip file manager, I wanted to associate it with all the compressed folder types on my computer. I did this in 7zip as I like the icons it uses, as you can tell from a glance what folder it is. However, when I go Tools>Options and click "Select All" on the "Associations" tab and click OK, all the check boxes are cleared when I go back to it.

Are you running Win7 64bit perhaps?
Try right-clicking on the 7-zip application shortcut and select Run as Administrator and try again.

I ran 7zip as admin and it worked! Thanks so much!
