OpenWith Enhanced is a Windows application that simply replaces the default "Open with" dialog, accessible through the context menu when opening files of formats unrecognized by the operating system.
The program compiles a list of popular apps associated with the given extensions, based on the users' choice. Its installation is done in no time.
From this point on, the "Open with" displays additional programs to choose from. The ones that are not installed on your computer are highlighted in red, and OpenWith Enhanced provides you with direct access to the developers' web pages if you care to download them.
As far as program settings are concerned, it is possible to modify the default colors for the background and label (installed and not installed applications), mark known freeware, as well as view programs as tiles or a report.
Furthermore, you can create a list with partial extensions to handle, ask OpenWith Enhanced to report the user's extension preferences, or switch to a different language for the GUI.
OpenWith Enhanced lets you view details on associated apps on the developer's website, remove selected associations and, more importantly, manage menu entries for specific file types.
The program does not put a strain on computer performance, using low CPU and RAM. It did not cause the OS to hang, crash or pop up error messages during our tests. However, the tool mainly relies on advertisements, which is not usually accepted by users.
