Did you understand my instructions of File Associations? Did that make sense?
This is a 'link' between a Program and its Data Files. My MS WORD program usually creates .DOC or .DOCX files.
So a .DOC or .DOCX file is "associated" with MS WORD.
I can change File Associations at any time - correctly or incorrectly! I can tell Windows, "Associate a .DOC file with WINDOWS PAINT" and I'll be getting 'Not valid JPG file' errors or something.
I can do this voluntarily. Or some other programs can screw this up for me! (Yeah. Right. Like I need help screwing up computers!! Grrrr)
Your English is fine, and if you want to write in Dutch, I can read that as well but I can't be certain my responses would be AS correct as in English!
Dominator and Mr.Belvedere are our natives, though, and my husband's grandparents were from Haarlem and he visited there as a boy many times.
